A dazzling show full of humour and acrobatics.

Last night's show was, hands down, the best comedy show I have seen in years.

The Korean group has put together an absolutely unbelievable show, full of humour, acrobatics and martial arts.

Having travelled to over 27 countries, clearly their formula has been winning people over.

I knew going in that it was going to be slapstick comedy, but I expected that the comedy would take a back seat to the martial arts, as is my usual experience with these shows.

I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled to find that neither are sacrificed.

It's easy to be in awe of their phenomenal litheness and agility, but what I really was blown away by was their impeccable comedic timing.

The show is hilarious start to finish, and I honestly cannot remember a time when I sat so thoroughly amused.

It's filled with big-belly laughs and they came from the little ones in the audience as well as the adults, so it's a show I can safely say will be enjoyed by all ages.

Slapstick comedy is often utilised in various shows, but it's rarely gotten right - and JUMP not only gets it right, but is consistently on point.

It would be so easy to have one or two gaffes, at least, fall flat - but astonishingly, none do.

The level of physical comedy shown in the performance is also unrivalled - with the play almost entirely non-verbal, they rely almost entirely on sound effects and physical comedy, to uproarious results.

I recognise that I'm sounding a little over-eager, but I cannot urge people to go enough - the friends I was with walked out as happy as I was.

It is worth noting that the play contains darkness, loud noises and strobe lighting.

The creators of this show are heartily commended - what a fantastic way to spend a night!

JUMP will be performing tonight and tomorrow at Arad Fort at 6.30pm.

Tickets are between BD8 and BD12.
