The superstar comedian said: "2012 is the year the Olympics & Paralympic Games return to the United Kingdom and I think this is a perfect time to hang a large bus off the edge of a building in a seaside town.
"I would hope that the word goes out from our country that not only do we run excellent world events, but also we balance coaches on the edges of buildings like no one else ever could."

A person has been airlifted to hospital after an accident involving a lorry and a cyclist. The incident led to the closure in both directions of the A259 De La Warr Road in Bexhill this morning. It happened between the A269 Dorset Road / King Offa Way and the A2036 Hastings Road (Glynde Gap).
A controversial link road between Bexhill and Hastings was given the go-ahead in today's budget. East Sussex County Council has committed £29m to the scheme - which it says is crucial to the creation of jobs and homes. Campaigners fear it will destroy a swathe of Sussex countryside.
