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 really really hope they get Liza, Kerry, Lou, Ed and the winner of the current series to do a Champion of Champions special. Liza with the cake was just *chef’s kiss* and I really want to see her up against Kerry’s *bosh* attitude!

  • They don't do it as much in the newer series but I love it when they show shots of the contestant's back in the studio reacting live to other contestants and their own footage. Adds another level of hilarity to each task. Seeing them cringe or reel in embarrassment or seeing them laugh hysterically at their own decisions aha. Hope they have some of that style shown in the new series!

  • That was...disturbing lol. And I’ve been delusional from extreme lack of sleep like Rob, right after giving birth to my daughter. When I’m that tired I laugh at everything like I’ve gone mad.

      walkin dudewalkin dudeMåned siden
    • @walkin dude I read your comment as a statement of how sketchy it seemed to be able to film day and night and so much content in just 20 minutes. I gave you a lateral-thinking answer in the spirit of TM for how it might be possible. We disagreed on interpretation, which is a fine place to leave it. I've found that trying for resolution on the Internet is Sisyphean. In short, it's okay that I'm contradicting you. And I'm doing it because it's conversation, and we're in a conversation section of a website. NBD dude :)

    • @Googie Gress then why are you contradicting me?

      walkin dudewalkin dudeMåned siden
    • @walkin dude It's a semantic argument that we could both feel technically right about with our separate subtly different understandings of English. Not worth the discussion.
