"Described as Jackie Chan meets Charlie Chaplin" – I'm in already. I'm so in. So far in that I'm kicking myself for not having thought of this fantastic combination myself.
Having been a fan of everything Jackie Chan has ever done (though disappointed to find out that he didn't actually voice his own character in the TV show Jackie Chan Adventures) this sort of thing is right up my street and, from the clips I've seen, there's plenty to get excited about. If you like martial arts, there are plenty of excellently choreographed routines on offer that will have you questioning exactly where the limits of the abilities of the human body are. For me, what makes this show definitely worth seeing is the addition of comedy and if you're into slapstick this seems like an absolute must see.
If you howled at Kung Fu Hustle, this is the perfect show for you.
'Jump' is on at Sadler's Wells' Peacock Theatre from 28th October – 15th November. For tickets and more information click here.
