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.

  • As much as I love Aisling, I can't stand people who think businessman, policeman, mailman, etc. is sexist. "Man" is just derivative of the word "human". Like MANkind or woMAN. It has nothing to do with gender but rather species.

    • @toffee1234100 That's true but people need to realize that words are just words. Sure we can change them but it needs to be understood that all people are doing is simply using the correct vocabulary. It seems a little extreme to change words because a select few people insist on being offended by words that aren't even offensive to begin with. Not to mention that the new words are almost always longer and harder to say, so naturally people will just say the other term. ie businessman vs businesswoman or business person.

    • but languages themselves can and are sexist, of course. think about lady and miss, the value of women changed through marital status and this is just an example. language can be changed

  • I know Aisling is being sarcastic, but the supposed sexism of the suffix "-man" comes from people not understanding the history of the English language.

      NintendoSunnyDeeNintendoSunnyDee23 dager siden
    • ​@ohnoagremlin In Old English, the word "man" meant an adult person. To specify gender, you used a prefix, "wer-" for male and "wif-" for female. A "werman" was an adult male person and a "wifman" was an adult female person. The "wer-" prefix is where we get the "were-" in "werewolf," and the "wif-" prefix is where we get the word "wife." Language changes over time, so the "wer-" prefix was dropped from males and the "wif-" prefix became "wo-," but using "-man" as a suffix is a holdover that technically means "person." But like I said, language changes over time, and people who don't know or care about old meanings imagined it was sexist, and perception is nine tenths of definition, so it practically became sexist. People have tried different ways to fix this problem, but it wasn't a problem until someone decided it was. They will say "policewoman" or "firewoman," but that's awkward and doesn't work for non-binary people. "Policeperson" and "fireperson" are even more awkward. I prefer the solution that avoids using these kinds of suffix, but instead uses a gender-neutral identifier like "police officer" and "firefighter." In this case, you could say a "business executive" or "office worker."

    • @Jennyfisch 👌 and at the end of they day, we all keep coming back to this show, so they must be doing something right in terms of casting

      Frosty FlamesFrosty Flames2 måneder siden
    • @Frosty Flames I see what you mean. I would argue though that Aisling did something similar in the boat task when she took off her trousers and told Alex to avert his eyes but not like he is disgusted, which also pokes fun at the fine line between women wanting to be admired but not objectified. At the same time Katherine was a bit too upset over the tie-thing. If we picked both series apart you would probably find more evidence for your case but from my memory of their tasks there are ways in which their style is quite similar.

      JennyfischJennyfisch2 måneder siden
    • for example, in a similarly fruit-related task, Katherine Ryan uses Alex Horne's discomfort with the anatomy of a woman against him when he was guessing where on her body she had hidden pineapple. The difference is that Katherine doesn't make the situation tense by being aggressive, but earns more laughs by being more playful. Aisling Bea keeps the tension hanging as if she is seriously angry about the wording of the coconut task. Aisling has a different way from Katherine of being funny, I just don't think that the type of comedian Aisling is meshes with the aspect of the show where you are meant to bounce jokes off of eachother; give eachother something to work with. She definately isn't the most boring comedian to be on the show tho.

      Frosty FlamesFrosty Flames2 måneder siden
    • So chasing Alex around for giving her a tie is better? Btw I have no problem with either, I liked them both on the show, but I'm wondering why you prefer one over the other when they were very similar in their comedic feminism.

      JennyfischJennyfisch2 måneder siden
    • I guess a more dry comedy comedian? While I do find her annoying I dont think she is the worst. At least she isnt favored by Greg like Noel. He won so much when his performance was average at best.
