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.

  • For a task like the coin task, I heard the instructions immediately and knew I would’ve dropped one coin in and walked off since I knew someone else in the group would fail the task and push me out of last place. 👏

  • I've noticed the bias from the very beginning and it's just gotten more and more annoying as the shows progressed. And that picture of Greg that Rhod kept using got old after the second time. Idk why he continued to be rewarded for that! But I'm not the taskmaster so I digress...

  • Taskmaster, I love you, but putting unskippable ads every 3 minutes is shameful. It makes the content unwatchable. I am happy to support the show by sitting through a reasonable number of short ads, say 3 or 4 max per episode.

  • See, I thought that "one attempt" at improved hula-hooping meant that, like their first attempt, they'd have 1 minute to hula as well as possible. And I would say that James improved his 1-minute hula hoop substantially. This may be why I am not the Taskmaster. I'm a bit too fair.
