Jump! (Martial Arts meets Slapstick)
Went to see 'Jump!' last night at the Peacock Theatre in Holborn, London (we got a deal on our tickets - 2nd row of the stalls only £12 each).
It's...and this is going to sound strange...a North Korean martial arts comedy. It's slapstick, it's lots of jumping and spinning and sword fighting and doing the splits and 'oh my god, they're so bloody flexible' and more than anything else it's very silly and funny.
I can't recommend it enough. I haven't laughed so much in ages (and it's suitable for kids). It's also made me want to get out my Tae Bo videos and improve my high kicks!
There's a video clip at the end of this page:
