Explore the comedic side of science with Doktor Kaboom Jan. 16 at SMU

WINONA, Minn. — Audiences will explode with laughter as Doktor Kaboom takes the stage during Saint Mary’s University’s next Page Series offering Thursday, Jan. 16.

The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in SMU’s Page Theatre, creatively blends theatre arts with the wonders of scientific exploration. Doktor Kaboom keeps his crowds riveted with interest and rolling with laughter. Join him for a sidesplitting journey of increasingly spectacular, and often successful, experiments and demonstrations. Using masterful improvisational skills, the artist takes his audience on an amusing tour of the modern scientific method while demonstrating spectacular applications of the physical sciences.

Doktor Kaboom is the creation of actor/comedian David Epley, who says he has been fortunate enough to discover two passions in his life. His first, science, took him to studies at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. His second, performing, became his career, and for 20 years Epley has made his living writing, performing and directing original interactive comedy across the U.S. and Canada. He now brings his passions together with an explosive style that refuses to allow his audiences time to catch a breath.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $6 for seniors and students and are available at the SMU Box Office Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., (507) 457-1715, or online at
