People probably came out this afternoon thinking "I hope I don't run into a flashmob of comedians". Well, bad luck suckers, 'cos that's exactly what they're going to run into...

So said Mark Watson as he kicked off last weekend's rather friendly invasion of The Royal Mile by Radio 4 comedians. The whole thing (including a special outdoor episode of Just a Minute) was filmed using the latest high definition cameras and you'll be able to see the full-length version on the the red button on your digital TV later this week.

In the meantime, click through to YouTube and play the HD version of the video for a quite dazzling sample of the event as it happened and click the embed button to put the video on your own web site.

    Comment number 1.

    I don't think that Mark Watson is representative of Radio 4 comedy, which I have to say is rather dreary and occasionally embarrassingly bad in my view. The Mitchell & Webb sound is an exception (highlight of my week as regards R4 comedy), but the rest... I used to like Just a Minute until it became the Paul Merton Show: couldn't he be given his own show rather than be allowed to dominate the program?
