Doktor Kaboom And The Wheel of Science (Doktor K Worldwide And Something For The Weekend)

By | Published on Saturday 13 August 2022

Pretty Ronseal title this – Doktor Kaboom comes on, spins the wheel and does some science. Solid. Where this show really shines, in amongst the excellent, fun and clearly explained science demos, is when the good Doktor addresses the kids directly, going beyond platitudinous ‘woo, science is cool kids’ stuff to really passionately exhorting, encouraging and, dare I say, inspiring both those who join him onstage for various larks as well as the general audience. Chuck in a smattering of decent gags for the parents and you have a foolproof formula for success. Tempting to do a pithy conclusion about the decision to catch this show not being rocket science but, thanks to Doktor Kaboom, I now know better.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 21 Aug.
