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.

  • I thought the Swedish person wasn't going to speak English that would have been a good wee twist

  • Should we be worried by the fact that the little jingles between bits sound similar to the theme from Dexter, combined with the fact that there seems to always be a room covered in plastic wrap?

  • That bulbous vein joke of frank’s was once part of his stage show. The punchline being - that’s the first time the a40 has ever met the m25

    • In series 1, the panel stuff was filmed in an actual theatre. Since series 2, it’s been in a TV studio, on a set designed to resemble that theatre.

  • I'll never understand why in the egg challenge, no one used the HUGE PILLOWS that were out there on the lawn and surely would have protected the eggs when they landed on them...

    Jóhann GunnarssonJóhann Gunnarsson2 måneder siden
    • @Mevrouw Cactus True but then they could just have wrapped the egg in paper and made it land there...

      Jóhann GunnarssonJóhann Gunnarsson2 måneder siden

  • "Powerful homoeroticism. I really enjoyed it." Coming from the Great Big Giant that used to work with children, that is a deeply unsettling thing to say. Also, the most used phrase in the reviews for the show.

    • No it isn't unsettling. Homosexuality is in no way linked to being a sex offender or pedophile.

    • Victoria MK Probably my fave exchange on Baddiel & Skinner Unplanned: Q: Elvis or the Beatles? Frank: Definitely Elvis, ever since the day my dad said “don’t know what the fuss is about, they’re not a patch on the Bachelors”. David: What, the people that make Cup-a-Soup?

    • kisbie I didn’t know he was an Elvis fan but that’s one of those facts that just absolutely makes sense

    • @Siddharth Being on a more recent series doesn't make someone more highly rated. It just means that you are reading the comments of goldfish. Wait a couple more years and you'll be saying "Acaster is underrated on this show."

      ZarabadaZarabada2 måneder siden
    • Yeah but when you think of taskmasters contestants most people would think of james acaster or Joe Wilkinson compared to frank Skinner

      SiddharthSiddharth2 måneder siden
    • Underrated? He is (rightfully) praised to be the reason of the show's very existance.

  • There would be no Taskmaster without Frank. Alex has said that they had trouble getting a cast for the first season, but Frank is so respected in British comedy that he gave the show the clout it needed when he signed on.

    • Yes, Frank was the main reason I watched the show from the start because I’ve been a huge fan of his ever since Fantasy Football. He was definitely the biggest name in the 1st series and gave it immediate kudos.
