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.

  • Why do they always refer to german as ‘the other language’?

  • At one point Joe says "io non parlo italiano" (I don't speak Italian). It's a pity (for me). Given that Mel graduated from Cambridge in both French and Italian, I would have loved to hear her giving directions in Italian.

(I assume it was smoothly, I don't know French. Every "uhh.." and "ahhmm..'and 'eerr..' sounds like a French word to me.) That being said...any French, German, Dutch or otherwise people in the hoooouuusse? *Smiles friendly in Dutch*

    • @Mr Bester Ohhh I feel stupid, I just looked it up, Mi Rowsu is from Suriname. But I'm confused then, so many people said that Mi Rowsu was Afrikaans. Sorry, I confused the two, I think.

      Widdekuu91Widdekuu91Måned siden
    • @Mr Bester Ohhh but there are enough Dutch artists and singers that do covers/Dutch covers of songs and sortof pass them off as their own. Usually it's carnival-types of songs though, like 'Ik heb een Boot' by the Gebroeders Ko, which is based on Basshunters 'Boten Anna.' Sometimes it's not that bad, but it's a bit sad for the original artist, indeed, I never hear about lawsuits somehow, you'd expect them to get those.

    • @Widdekuu91 Ah yes, Karlientjie is a household name here! And I will definitely look up 'tuintje in mijn hart'! Fun fact about Afrikaans singers, they tend to use original Dutch/German songs, translate the words to Afrikaans, and not many people here even notice and think that it's their songs. Sad, but interesting.

      Mr BesterMr BesterMåned siden
    • @Mr Bester Klinkt al goed :D I have an African friend, she looks a lot like a certain singer and she likes the music too. My friend's called Lindy and the name is the singer is Karlien van Jaarsveld. I know the song 'sing vir liefde' through her haha. And we all know 'tuintje in mijn hart/mi rowsu' -song, it's a bit old, but still very popular. Then again, most of the lyrics in that song are Dutch, not African. :P

    • @Snaakie Aaaahh okay, I get it haha. I have had this channel for 13 years now, never been called Widdekuu in real life, but I like how sometimes people online, shorten it to Widde. They just go; 'Oh hey, Widde, I saw you on a different video.' xD I don't know, it's just funny, I came up with something 13 years ago and now, in 2020, I still get called by the nickname I took 10 seconds to decide back then.

    • I feel like I would try to communicate mostly by tugging the driver's shirt in various directions to tell them where to go, pat them on the head to communicate that a more complex action needs to happen, and make constant approving or disapproving grunts based on how well they're following my bad directions, unless I'm the driver, but the "driven" seem like they have most of the responsibility. for the balloon I would likely just hand them the balloon while making explosion noises

    • Well I’m American and speak 4/5 languages, so 🤷🏼‍♀️ (English, French, Italian, Welsh, and American Sign Language). Foreign languages are taught in American schools, it’s just that English is so widely spoken they tend not to use their second language after graduating and lose some of it. I would bet that most Americans could figure out “left, right, stop, turn” and could count in at least one language other than English to be able to accomplish this task. But way to generalize and stereotype a country of 330 million people! Also just want to point out that a lot of Americans learned English as a second language. I had several friends in school who did not speak English at home. Their families spoke Russian, Cantonese, or Mandarin at home.
