Ben & Mark Explore Summer Night Market

Mark & Ben wince as they sample some of the more challenging fare at the Summer Night Market in Richmond.

Ben and I had some fun exploring the Summer Night Market in Richmond recently, with videographers Nathan and Ryan capturing our culinary misadventure on camera. The idea was to give people who haven’t enjoyed a trip to an Asian night market a sense of what the experience is like.

We spent a few hours wandering through the crowd, talking with people, and enjoying all sorts of Asian treats at literally dozens of food stalls. But we didn’t really even capture the whole experience, with many more non-food stalls selling all kinds of knickknacks and live performances happening all evening. We just didn’t have time to capture it all!

Anyone familiar with Ben and I (and our sense of humour) knows this video has been edited so it’s safe for parents and children, but if you’d like to see a short sampling of how we really behave (on or off camera) check out the blooper reel.

    Thanks dudes! Totally enjoyed this and am still wondering why I haven’t gone yet after all this time.

    So tell me….when are you starting your own TV series? ;)

    Ha ha, thanks Nancy.

    Certainly not the first time we’ve heard that. I suppose the magic that is “Ben & Mark” would make for some interesting TV if there were producers brave enough to stand back and let us do what we do. Gosh, can you imagine what that show would be like? Yikes.

    OK, now I’m hungry…again. Anyone got any lung?

    Fan – freaking – tastic!

    I’m sending the link to a Producer I used to work for. Who knows.

    Vimeo has some server difficulties I guess, but everything seems to be working fine now as far as I can tell.

    Loved your show. I hope to see you on the food channel with your own show, evaluating fun places to eat around the world. It would be a good part-time gig. Keep up the good work.
