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 often say Hugh was the best contestant, but thats only because I forget about Rhod... The fucking legend that he is... Its a tough call between the 2, but i think Rhod might just have it They almost blend together to me... Somewhat oddly...

  • Rod got cheated on the beans man. I don't feel bad for Alex being exposed now. Although it is commendable. The things Alex does for his show. Having someone else host his show, getting ass caked, exposing his id number, showing his little alex horne.

  • God, I hope I'll be able to stomach Kerry throughout this series. Her constant grumpiness/bitchiness is already going on my nerves. Also - who on earth doesn't watch past episodes of the show that one will spend a significant amount of time on for preparation?!

  • I can't help but wonder whether Rhod and Phil had a meeting where they decided that this show needs more dong. Reminds me of a co-worker who once wore a dress that made me go "Interesting choice of dress" - either she didn't get it or I was not the person whose attention she wanted because she responded by saying something about it being a summer color...

  • This line up will be impossible to match. This is the series that I got into Taskmaster, and although the others are great - including the brand new contestants, it does feel that this load of delightful bollocks will be unparalleled.

  • Point of order: the actual circumference of the caravan is 0 beans, bc the caravan is neither a circle nor an ellipse and therefore does not have one. The Perimeter of the caravan is nine hundred sixty whatever beans.

I have watch every series again in order and am enjoying it all over again. This time more fun because I’m more familiar with the comedians on here now.

  • I'm kind of regretting reading that interview from Rhod for this. He was worried in it that he came off badly in the show but he's no worse than some of the other contestants. However, in the interview he kept mentioning he didn't have a good time and if he could go back he wouldn't have done it and he resented the other contestants for trying to talk Greg into disqualifying other contestants and all of that is so much worse than the way he seems in the actual show. He also tormented Alex because he was having a bad time and not because he was just joking around and that more than anything makes me not really like him Edit: I wanted to tack on that the reason I regret reading the interview is I really want to like home based on how he is in the show. I guess I'll just feel conflicted about it. Little Alex Horne didn't seem to take it personally in his interview on season 7
