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’ve got this thing about Mel. Admittedly it involves Sarah Paulson dressed in bondage gear and a carton of Um Bongo.

  • Ugh this series literally annoyed me so much because Mel (or Hugh) SHOULD HAVE WON by miles! Noel only won because there were about a million artistic tasks and he went to art school! But Mel was brilliant and Hugh's lateral thinking should have netted him way more points than it did. Such a frustrating series.

  • 6:30 I might understand Mel's confusion. Maybe, like me, she thought that Alex said "would you like to see a raven", and immediately assumed he was referring to Noel Fielding.

    • No, because it's literally the most annoying thing ever. So many tasks in Series 4 were art-related and guess who won the series? The guy who went to art school. Mel was robbed.

  • The way that Mel says "96", in reference to the year 1996, and Alex says "104" without missing a beat as if he really understood what was going on. Like, you just say any number to Alex and he'll nod and say back a different number.
