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.

  • Who would be the contestants for a "best of the worst" show? Katherine Parkinson, Charlotte Ritchie, David Badiel and who else?

  • As an introvert American I have just found Taskmaster (THANK YOU NOworld...) and other British Comedy panel shows. I had no clue who she was. Katherine was such fun to watch and lovely to think about too. Such a beauty and an amazing laugh. Turns out she is an actress with amazing legs. Thank you for providing such fun talk about my new favorite show.

  • Seeing Katherine Parkinson on taskmaster only made me love her more as an entertainer! It always looked to me like you were half way between wanting to win and wondering to yourself what you were doing. Loved her in IT crowd and everything else I've seen her in. Much love from the US

  • Mike's prize was never a real sculpture, it was always a box of broken bits, he probably didn't expect everyone to fall for it

  • How do we vote Ed Gamble off taskmaster island? Anyone else think that his pre-recorded intro is cringeworthy? What kind of host can't introduce the podcast during the interview???? The kind that waffles on and on and on.... Get frikking on with it you terrible terrible man. Fight me if you like.

  • She never did a task by herself! She used Alex Horne all the time and even the crew. I found her acting like she was incredibly ‘superior’ to the others.

    Patti MercerPatti MercerMåned siden
    • Alex Horne touched on this previously. They helped because they knew it wouldn't make a difference to the final result.

  • I assumed Wozniak's prize was intentionally broken, so that that was the shocking bit after his in-depth description of what it would be. Since he didn't run with it, I guess I was wrong.

  • I only found out a few months back that pipe cleaners were meant to clean smoking pipes. I had a very hard time finding pipe cleaners that weren't for crafts (needed sturdy ones) and was referred to the tobacco section of the store. Very confused, I asked "Why tobacco?" The lady answered "For cleaning pipes" And a light bulb went on.

  • Mike's smashed prize was definitely just a box of glass and was never actually a sculpture. At least that's what I assumed. I couldn't believe it when I heard Ed and Katherine talking about how it was a shame that the statue smashed. There was no statue.

  • I love that katherine's approach to the sauna stone task is to try spitting, knowingly fail, then ask someone from the crew to do the spitting. The whole point of spitting is that you cant go past the rope, so if someone else is doing the spitting for you they could just walk up to it or pour water on it.

  • Had to say I was surprised that despite being a huge Tasmaster fan Ed didn't recognise Mike's prize task as being deliberately broken - especially considering this is essentially what he did in the original show at the Fringe for the "Post Alex the biggest thing" task (he went with a gigantic ice statue on small wooden plinth).
