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 love Taskmaster, but Ed Gamble was probably the most obnoxious contestant they've had on. He relished being mean to people (especially Alex), pouted when he was losing, and could only act gracious when he was ahead in points. Too often the answer to "Is Ed genuinely being a jerk here?" is a clear "yes." I don't think Ed thinks he's a bad sport, a bully, or a brat, but he's all three. And no, I don't think he behaved that way just to be funny. I think it was just his personality shining through.

    • I think you saw *_way_* to much into things there. At least why I told my brother there was an after the show podcast he was honest and blunt with the fact he doesn't really like Ed and he's not his thing.

  • This was a great move by the Taskmaster team! Whomever was the one that came up with the idea should be praised accordingly! Unless it was you, Little Alex Horne, you get a smidgen less praise than all others. Daddy Greg's orders, soz x. Seriously though, all jest aside, I'm keen on watching since Channel 4 *finally* came to terms with realising the show was quite good all along.

  • Starts Thursday 15th 9pm on C4 Trouble is being on C4 we have two wait a week between episodes unlike Dave that showed one episode a nights And In a Thursday 9pm slot, not sure if this is right for the show would have expected it to have been in the Friday 10pm slot where the like of 8 out of of 10 cats does countdown, 8 out of ten cats or The last leg get put, but i am guessing C4 thinks this slot is for the more established comedy shows and are just testing the water with a 9pm Thursday slot... I mean it the kinda slot where lots will just record it to watch later but only time will tell as it’s going up again The Apprentice Best Bits on BBC 1, a new episode of A league of their own on Sky one, Love island what happened next on ITV3 and Lee Mac’s new series The Chop on sky History.

    • @C. H. The points aren't that important, obviously, but it's still fun to get caught up in the anticipation just to see. Sometimes folks have a fan favorite and want to root for them. Knowing in advance hardly ruins the show, but it's still removing a little bit o' the fun. Still, it's not like the podcast won't be full of spoilers, so this is probably a good warning for that.

  • I have two very serious not serious questions. Do they feel bad about disqualifying Joe for barely stepping on the red green, but not disqualifying Russel for stepping past the stump in S6E7...? Are they prepared to retroactively forgive Joe....? Or take points away from Russel.....? Also, when are we going to give Liza some kind of special prize for that team task where she got hops in like 17 seconds but her team completely ignored her, so she just started hopping on her own in the background and won her team the task by herself....? I know she won that series, but I still feel like she deserves something special for that. Like, beyond her own personal vindication. If you ever have Liza on, please share with her my feelings towards her for that. Obviously this is all a game and we're all just having fun, but I still think of that task. She's such a champ and she should have been given special recognition for that task. Such a concise display of the presence of sexism in this day and age (again, no I'm not actually taking this that seriously, I don't think the guys are expressly sexist, etc etc etc, just saying. She's a champ and I'm not on social media so I don't know if she got the recognition she deserved)

    • @Brian Higginson I can absolutely accept that. But then why not have disqualified Russel...? Joe's was more contextually impressive so knocking it down justly is more of a thing, granted, but knocking out a decent performance is still knocking out a decent performance. It wouldn't have been as exciting as the time they disqualified Joe, but neither were all the other subsequent disqualifications

    DSMDSM11 dager siden
    • @Bayou Billy yeah that makes sense, but I was surprised by the spoiler because I got this video casually on my recommended and I watch the show on NOworld, so I didn't expect a video on the channel that is releasing the seasons to have information about a winner for a not yet uploaded season. But yeah, in retrospect I could've seen it coming, since the podcast is for everybody, especially those who watch it on TV, bc it has to talk about the latest things on the show. I will only point out that it is on TV in the UK, but most of the world doesn't have the show in the local stations. So, I don't know if the viewers on the UK still beat the rest of the world who watches it on NOworld combined (probably yes), but certainly online platforms must make up for an expressive amount - and they're the only legal option for many, many fans. So having a spoiler show up casually in the only legal place to watch was still kinda unexpected and sad :(

      DSMDSM11 dager siden
    • @DSM I find it odd when people look for info outside their show about their show...then complain about if a podcast might cater only to the small youtube fan base or the humongous amount watching on t.v. I know , I know its the cool thing to pretend tv is dead(I see it on NOworld constantly...ironically always on rebroadcasts of major shows...)but I believe they still have about 80% market share. Despite their whining and the bravado of youngish netizens ignorant of yep major podcast gonna have spoilers of repeats... Lemme repeat that... Repeats...
