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.

    • Also looks like some of the Horne Section were there and at the disposal of the contestants (looks like Mark Brown playing the sax for Jo). if David had left the room he might have noticed.

    • It's not really a play on words. Alex's music comedy band is called 'The Horne section', and they are credited as composers on the show

  • I hate the Taskmaster theme song. Alex Horn is brilliant and I've always like this little band, but this song is so annoying I mute it. As for words, let's see..."Alex was drunk, sorry 'bout that! Sounds just like some body stepped on a cat! "

  • Rose adds an extra beat in "and a heart of gold" so you can tell someone recorded the banjo part after the fact to account for it.. they've got some good musicians on board! Love the attention to detail, she sounded great!

    • It was probably The Horne Section, the band Alex is a part of and who does the original intro! I'm not entirely sure if any of them play the banjo, however, so this is just a guess!

  • EDIT: thanks for helping me complete the lyrics There was a country boy called Alex Horne he had a heart of gold and a brain full of corn he made up tasks sunrise to set test the cows and the chickens on their intellect Till one day he went to the big city met a tall old man named Greg Davies he said I'm gonna put you on the TV success will be ours, there I guarantee We get five guys and girls to play your game who will all be on varying levels of fame Alex shook his hand and the deal was done Yeehaw Greg, now we're gonna have some fun So that's the story, truth be told How little Alex Horne's little soul was sold that's the tale told by me about how Taskmaster came to be!

  • Tbh, The taskmaster theme song is not a good song to sing to. or occasionally, even to listen to. Don't get me wrong, I love the show. just not the music.

  • Rose's was so good! Ed's song was bad but I get why he came in 2nd because of the "memorable performance". I liked Katy's because she picked up on Alex's weird obsession with eggs.

    • Katy had a hard hat on, was expecting her to hit it over her head, OR fake hit it over her head and then smash it on Alex. That should have increased her points!
