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.

  • Desky!!! I think he was the most brilliant contestant. Bending all the rules. Was it him who disconnected the pipe to the shower to stop Alex from getting wet too? His brilliance only got topped by Sally's giving birth to Alex's video. That was second to none.

      Di TokelioDi Tokelio22 dager siden
    • Anas Malas - I’ve repeatedly watched every episode of Taskmaster, as well as the Edinburgh Fringe pilot and bonus extras. There is absolutely laughing in the background during every task, often even from Greg, Alex, and the on-stage competitors themselves. I was just pointing out to the original commenter that none of it is fake (aka “laugh tracks”).

      Keaton BellistonKeaton Belliston22 dager siden
    • Like, you realize that during the tasks, which are shown to us directly, and are projected infront of the audience, there is no laughing. The only laughing you hear is in non played back sections, live

      Anas MalasAnas Malas22 dager siden
    • @Keaton Belliston unless I know a wrong definition of "played back", it would be like recording an episode, and then playing the entire thing infront of an audience just to record their laughs

      Anas MalasAnas Malas22 dager siden
    • @Anas Malas It is played back, though. With the exception of the final studio task, the tasks are done weeks to months in advance. Greg, Alex, and the contestants then sit in a studio with an audience and watch a playback of the tasks.

  • I've always thought you could have beaten the egg golf by just picking the egg up and placing it in each hole by hand. Because then you have zero shots, so in the calculation of "Shots x Eggs x Minutes" you'll have a 0 for shots, rendering the entire score 0 no matter what.

    AudiodumpAudiodump24 dager siden
    • Weirdly the way to win the egg mini golf task was by not actually playing golf as you said. Like Roisin was the only one to not take any actual shots? She just gently swept the eggs with her club the entire way through, so Alex could only count each “shot” from the moment she stopped dragging it. So she had an insanely low number of shots x only 1 egg (since she never broke any) x a pretty fast time, and won as a result. I think Alex even realized that the way he calculated the score was insanely broken because everyone else racked up a golf score in the thousands
