Paul Zaloom played the irreverent, wacky, brilliant Beakman on the science-oriented kids show Beakman’s World in the 90s. Zaloom’s bizarre appearance and brilliant comic timing turned each episode into an amazing learning experience that combined equal parts Albert Einstein and Groucho Marx. Zaloom occasionally reprises his Beakman role in a touring demontration called Beakman Live!
