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.

    Ella JacksonElla JacksonMåned siden
  • There's a very simple way of telling if an egg was boiled or if it's raw. You just spin it on a flat surface and if it spins fast and normally, it was boiled, but if it wobbles and is slow, it's raw since the liquid inside is moving around, preventing it to spin normally.

    CryptidianCryptidianMåned siden
  • I just realized For the "Find the boiled egg" task, you could have just picked up any egg, went to the kitchen, boiled it, and then technically after that it's now a 'boiled' egg (even if it's not a real one). You would have also only touched one too.

    nordlyselskernordlyselskerMåned siden
  • For the "find the boiled egg" task, you didn't actually have to break any of the eggs: ~You can immediately eliminate D, the rubber "egg", because it's not an egg. ~You can quickly eliminate C, the clingfilmed egg, because you can hear it gooping. ~You can eliminate A - the "air" egg - by comparing eggs A, B, C, and F by weight, just by lifting up the eggcups. A is far too light in comparison to the others, so it's not the boiled egg. ~ That leaves eggs B, E, and F. Pick up eggs B and F, and check them the same way you checked egg C. If you can hear both gooping, egg E is the boiled egg, and if you can only hear one of eggs B and F gooping, the one you cannot hear is the boiled egg.

  • For another compilation idea you can do disqualifications. This can be done in two ways. The first way, is just disqualification that Greg decided based on the rules that should be funny, tragic, etc. The other way, is any time there were so many disqualifications that the people/person who won really didn’t do that well (example; in S5E2 during the cutting a loaf of bread task, the only people who didn’t get disqualified were Nish and Mark). Of course you could do a compilation with both. Comment any other examples too!

    • @kisbie It's the opposite, at least in my country. They started geo-blocking the older, Dave series (licensing issues…?), but I'm immensely grateful that they upload the new (Channel 4) series 10 and 11 almost immediately after they air on TV. I really prefer supporting the show by watching it on the official channel, rather than looking for Google Drive links to pirated videos. Perhaps the clips they use here are more "readily available" and "pre-prepared" than ones they'd have to edit out of the new episodes?

      RallixRallixMåned siden

    • @neithere I was first drawn in by his appearances on WILTY. He has a prickly and tense aura in combination with a languid physicality that I found immediately compelling. Crazy things have happened to him and he narrates them with a combination of resentment and relish. His cabbage story spun a wonderful narrative about an intense antagonism with a CHILD over a VEGETABLE for chrissakes. His story about the game of squirt was delightfully absurd and he added in particularly whimsical details like "volunteer fireman aren't allowed to put a fire out, they can have a hose and play with it but if a fire started they would have to turn it off." His stand up was a bit of an acquired taste for me but I didn't have to try too hard tbh... with just a little bit of time I was completely won over by the strange universe he's created and how he draws all his seemingly disparate strands together. Just when I think he's being random and careless, it turns out he's actually being super precise. His politics are solid without being pious too. Like even his very urgent pushback against Lorraine Kelly deifying Piers Morgan was presented with a beautiful, de-escalating bow at the end where he riffed on an earlier thing about her liking penguins and being nice. So yeah I think he's bloody excellent. Also every comedian who's in the room with him is always laughing helplessly so I feel pretty validated. Can his style leave people cold? I can imagine it. But bland and predictable he absolutely is not. Sorry for the gushing but I like to present the evidence when I have it lmao

      Anushka SenAnushka SenMåned siden
    • @neithere I don't know what to say here other than that there is no universal taste. What you think is brilliant, the guy next to you might find stupid and vice versa. I don't like Acaster in any show BUT taskmaster. And I think he was literally the best character they ever had so far. Why I called that other guy a hater is because he spammed this comment section with the same messages and did not give any reason when pushed to explain why he dislikes Acaster. Liking someone or not is no problem, but spamming it over and over qualifies someone as a hater or troll in my book. Just so we are clear.

      T ST SMåned siden
    • @neithere I was disappointed by James in Taskmaster but I love his standup and his podcast Off Menu is what got me into British comedy in the first place. I also love some of his “classic scrapes” and the way he pushes back against the twats on Sunday Brunch.

      Chelsea Wildflower Loftin WeylerChelsea Wildflower Loftin WeylerMåned siden
    • @T S although I don't support hate spamming, I don't understand the universal love for JA either. IMHO, he's neither smart nor funny, just a bland character like many others, can't even think of a way to describe him rather than boring and pretentious. I could have missed something. For example, Lee and Rob were so-so at QI but amazing at WILTY. Is there something you like about James in particular or a certain show where he's good?

      neithereneithereMåned siden
    • @Keerthi Sagar nah, he's just a hater. And Acaster is f*cking awesome.
