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 me. Lee Evans, Sandi Toksvig, Bill Bailey, Tim Minchin and Phil Jupitus would be a phenomenal line up.

  • Anyone else think Taskmaster needs freshening up a bit after 10 series? The best way to do this, I think, is to replace Greg Davies. I vote for Tim Key. Over.

  • they've had almost all my favorite comics on so far, they really just need David Mitchel, Sean Locke, Jimmy Carr, Rob Bryden, Ed Byrne, Dara O Briain, Jack Whitehall, Lucy Beaumont, Alan Carr, and Jason Manford, Cariad Lloyd, Catherine Tate, Sue Perkins, Angela Barnes, David O'Doherty, Dylan Moran, Tommy Tiernan, Julian Barrett, or Matt Berry I know Richard Ayoade has turned it down before but only because he was too busy so I hold out hope that that would happen I'd say Bryan Blessed, Sandy Tosvig, Billy Connolly, or Stephen Fry but I doubt they'd agree to it, it seems a bit beneath them.

  • Mike and Charlotte are too adorable and good looking for this show. Mike overshadows everyone too much. Lee and Sarah are competent as hell. Jamali is just plain awful with major anger issues. As an Asian woman I’d wanna marry Mike but avoid Jamali in every possible way.

  • Todays episode of blind trying to work out how many sides each object has is wrong... paper doesnt have 2 sides it has 6 sides... paper is not infinitely thin.. its not a square image made on Photoshop that has 0 thickness... you could say an egg and a banana both have infinite sides and 1 side... although you could say that about anything really as on a microscopic level everything in the real world has billions of edges... but trying not to be TOO pedantic about everything, the paper one is definitely wrong.. its definitely 6 sides not 2

  • Just watching Lee Mack's thing about having to cover himself completely in clingfilm AND duct tape... his analogy isn't really the same.... covering yourself in 2 things doesnt mean you have to do both over the entire body else it would say "cover your body in clingfilm and cover your body in duct tape" his analogy that states - completely eat a plate full of chips AND beans is not the same thing cos it suggests he's imagining there is only one plate of beans & chips... which if we consider the human body being a plate then the duct tape covering half & the clingfilm covering half would be classed as him eating all of the chips AND the beans... what the task would really be would be having two plates, one full of beans and one full of chips and one empty plate, and it saying, eat A plate full of chips and beans and said person would then put whatever combination of chips & beans that they so desire onto the empty plate before eating it... hope that explains everything.. Lee Mack was wrong...

  • I'm amazed Ed didn't say anything about how Charlotte was clearly taking things out of the bowl and laying them beside her. You can clearly see it in the footage - there's rice-covered jelly just sitting beside her, but nobody seems to have either noticed or cared.

    MrEntityMrEntityMåned siden
    • Nobody cared about that yes, because she wasn't hiding it, and they do have spotters to watch each contestant, so a few people would have seen it and decided not to call it.

  • Another podcast and another let down down! Ed out Richard herring in! Stop trying to drown out your fans by making the podcasts on NOworld unavailable in england and therefore Halt the drive towards getting Richard herring to do the job properly...!

  • I think Rick would be a great fit for Taskmaster. He shows the difference between someone who's just generally funny and someone who's actually a comedian but I think for the structure of Taskmaster being just generally witty and quick thinking is more than enough and Rick certainly fits that in my humble opinion. Would definitely like to see him on the show, especially since he's such a big fan of the show. I think he'd be very entertaining.

  • Why do you take the podcasts down? I've missed the last one now because of work.

    CrashSableCrashSableMåned siden
  • Rick would be a great shout for the show actually. I don't think you necessarily have to be a stand up to do Taskmaster - you just have to be quick and witty. Rick's more than capable of being a great competitor.

    Rob InnesRob InnesMåned siden
    • agree, there's been a lot of great contestants that weren't even comedians

  • I noticed even viewing from the UK, all the older previous podcasts have disappeared from NOworld, why's that I wonder? These are available as audio-only elsewhere, but I prefer the YT version so I can't understand why they've all been taken down, especially as this new one hasn't!

    Big LoganBig LoganMåned siden
    • @Big Logan No worries, pal. One of the big things about Man Down series 1 is that Greg's dad was played by Rik Mayall, one of my highest rated performers and a legend here. Sadly, he passed away just before the second series started filming, so some fast changes had to be made. That altered the feel of the programme and you may have picked up on that. Without the context of Rik's passing it may have seemed odd, or disjointed.

    • @UnChannelDuVulpineX oh okay cool!!! I quite like him! ... I tried watching a couple episodes of one of Greg's shows but just didn't like it ... sort of a weird situation considering how much I love his standup and various panel show appearances ... but maybe that's why I've never seen the dude before.

  • i was thinking about Greg Davies as a contestant as late as last night. id love to see him in a season, maybe have him do it on the side of the 5 normal members per season. and if he does best no one gets points. anyways i still think he would be somewhat interesting to see

  • So, if next week's guest is Sarah does that mean she's not the champ? Or she gets to reappear as the champ on ep 10 discussion when it's due? I imagine it would be difficult to keep things secret if she is indeed the champ. I just hope this haunting feeling won't spoil the experience for me

    • Long-term, if you want to find 10 fitting people to appear on the podcast, it helps out a lot if 5 of those are the contestants with the winner being invited to the season recap.
