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.

  • Should've added to "that's all they had", that 42 is also the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. Coincidence I think not.

    • Not really, they're quite cermonial positions , that's how they got him to do the program, although British politicians don't take themselves as overly seriously as American ones.

    • Also, his poem was quite good, with the flow and rhymes. Reciting it while managing to also juggle, that is quite impressive. He should've won, hands down.

  • I'd have crowned both juggle poem and beer and calippos as joint winners. Come on now. Was there a heatwave when they filmed? I think the mayor belongs to the Calippo Organization and gave a low score to not expose himself. 😒 Which is unfair. He brought beer too! That would impress me more to be honest than the incredible juggle poem. Beer and calippos 11, juggling poem 10. Canadian rap song 9.

  • Doc sang off key more often than not. John could at least hold a tone. How the heck did this not weigh in? Is the mayor tone deaf?

  • When I initially pictured how I'd handle this task, my first thought was exercise (like push-ups or something) which is why it was so relieving to hear people start singing, because yes, that is probably how I'd deal with that task and I would do about or only slightly less than okay. It'd certainly be less embarrassing than trying to impress a mayor with basic exercise (in bad form also; I never could figure out how to do a proper press-up). Alternatively, I'd just try to use my internet knowledge to pass as a hacker. "Tell me a question you want answered or a secret you want dug up, pass me your phone, and I'll sort it for you". That sort of thing. Because then you just gotta be able to bs well enough that he can't tell if you've actually answered his question or just made something up that sounds plausible enough, and both those things are at least mildly impressive.
