In this Broadcast Award-winning, BAFTA and Emmy Award-nominated entertainment show, Taskmaster tyrant Greg Davies (Man Down, Cuckoo), with the help of his loyal assistant Alex Horne (The Horne Section and the show’s creator), sets out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper-competitive comedians.
Comedians that have risked life, limb, and dignity in the hope of making the Taskmaster proud so far include: Frank Skinner (The Frank Skinner Show), Mel Giedroyc (The Great British Bake Off), Romesh Ranganathan (Asian Provocateur), Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones’ Diary), Rose Matafeo (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2018), and Russell Howard (The Russell Howard Hour). Unaware of what awaits them in each wax-sealed envelope, only one competitor can become the victorious owner of His Royal Task-ness’ golden head and be crowned the next Taskmaster Champion.

  • the flushers didn't erase it? they just moved it to a different location wtf? their time is still going to this date, unless they've found it and erased it by now.. what they think the toilet is some magic teleportation device to another dimension or something?

  • This goes all the way back to when Tim Key didn't make the iceblock disappear, except then it was done out of trying to be different and clever and this was more everyone trying to win I guess? Either way Key didn't get any points and neither should the rest

  • I once tried running on a treadmill with my crocs on as a very young kid and the damn thing atomized them in about 15-20 seconds flat. So that's what I would've probably done. The eraser would've just gone in seconds.

  • Not literally erasing the "this eraser" part in the letter with the abrasive side of the eraser. Tid bit disappointed. Still highly entertained and the sand paper should have been the 5:er.

  • Greg this is how you start a mutiny, the only person who erased should get all the points. The rest are disqualified. Or you give five points for erasing and then assess points based on time. And then bill them for fucking up the plumbing of the house with their erasers.

  • e·rase rub out or remove (writing or marks). "graffiti had been erased from the wall" remove all traces of (a thought, feeling, or memory). "the magic of the landscape erased all else from her mind" remove recorded material from (a magnetic tape or medium); delete (data) from a computer's memory. So going by the second definition they did erase it.

  • Joe definitely should have won. He completed the task in good faith and intelligently. Splitting up the eraser(So you can do it twice as fast) and rubbing the two bits on to sandpaper for increased abrasion is really the best way of 'erasing an eraser'

  • Nobody is talking about what a shithead thing it really is to use a toilet as a garbage dispenser. Best case: the water plant has to fish your trash out of the filter. Worst case: your trash causes a blockage in the pipes. There are only three things that go in a toilet: Bodily fluids, shit, and toilet paper. Every single other thing is bad etiquette to flush.

  • Destroying or flashing the eraser down the toilet is not ERASING it! I hate it when they do stuff like that in the show.. the sandpaper was a great idea, or they could try erasing the word eraser on the paper (as someone commented) or even erase the letters that were printed on the actual eraser

  • As an American, I find it strange how the entirety of taskmaster is basically exactly what it seems. In America there would be some trick to use that they would get halfway through the task and figure it out and win. Here it is just literally, “Get rid of this fucking rubber”. Also in America a rubber is a condom. Edit: This is way better than most American TV shows and I fucking love it as well as most British TV but this was just my observation.

Awarding points for something every two year old is learning not to do, is... Not the best idea. Sorry for being a killjoy. I just love lakes. Toilet water goes into lakes, you know. Sewage treatment is obstructed by objects. Want the job of separating this shit from real shit..?
