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.

  • What were her parents thinking naming her "Nell" !!! It's an odd enough name to begin with (and kind of an ugly name in my opinion), but then on top of that you have the movie "Nell", which means she is going to get people saying "tay in the win" for her entire life. Is that the kind of association you want with your child's name?

  • To be fair, the idea of putting the bathtub under the Hammock was actually incredibly smart, because then by focusing all of the weight in the middle, it would cause the hammock to bulge into the bathtub, giving an extra "wall" allowing things to not fall out as easily.

  • That Ian dude's really bringing this season down. There is no single more unattractive quality than people who can't read the room and ratchet the competitiveness to an uncomfortable place. Like bro save some of it for you therapist, good god. We get it: someone at some point, probably when you were very small, made you feel like a loser and you've spent the entire rest of your life trying to run away from the scary belief that they may have been right. Not something I want to be repeatedly made to think about in a comedy show.

  • Ian may have been ridiculous during the hammock challenge, but Lou was also extremely ridiculous when she was screaming I caught it! repeatedly like a petulant child. I haven't really liked her attitude in any of the episodes so far, she's obnoxious (as is Ian don't get me wrong). Oh well some series just don't have endearing contestants....

    Julia EJulia EMaand geleden
    • I find her endearing because she has fun doing tasks. She obviously knew she did not catch the book and didn't really want to let her team down. In her reddit AmA , she says she didn't mean to come a cross like she had an attitude when she was joking around most of the time. Oh well.

  • Honestly reading all this comments I expected much worse. Iian got a bit competitive in the group task, but it wasn't that bad either honestly. But who knows, maybe that's just because I'm German , who are known for being direct and somewhat rude, and I'm not used to polite Brittish sensibilities.

    Van essaVan essaMaand geleden
    • @Mr. Peapoo lmao please chill. My comment had nothing to do with ww2 and neither was I in any shape or form claiming Germans are better. I simply observed some cultural differences as Germans tend to be more direct, which often is perceived as rude my other people. That's it. I didn't even condone Iians behaviour. I just said I expected something else from the comments than what was shown in the end and that it was not that bad. Not that bad does not equal good. As the comment above me mentioned being rude and loud is not why Hitler gained power either. That's not even a in accurate simplification anymore but a plain wrong statement.

    • @BizzaroHunter They weren't gonna win shit, bro, the others had three people, the barrels and more on/in the hammock lol. More importantly though, I just rewatched that part and the book fell right before or at the latest right as Ian said to not put stuff on one side. In fact, it looks like he said it BECAUSE he noticed the book falling and was like "oh shit, we should not have done that". Also, the reason they were being so hectic in the first place was because they knew they had no time left, which was NOT because of Lou but because Ian was being a bitch for 7 minutes straight. But thanks for your weak attempt at mansplaining, big guy, I'm sure your daddy's proud of you.

    • Did Ian really, and I quote, "ruin everything" when it was in fact Lou who got them disqualified? They very well could have still won the task if Lou wasn't continuing to stack stuff on the same side, in spite of Ian telling them very explicitly to not keep putting stuff on that side.

    • I am fascinated honestly by the difference in mentality. I am from Switzerland, one of the bilingual german-french regions and a rural area. I live in a city but it is a very small city and it is the "capital" of the region. We are quite honest, direct and a bit rough in the way we talk. The way he behaved was not nice but he didn't tell any insult so this would have not been a big deal at all here. When we have to play with someone who behaves like that, what we do is ignore that person and do our thing until that person calms down. And if that person's behaviour is preventing us from winning, no big deal, we loose and that teaches that person a lesson. The way we see it here, there are situations where it's not worth losing energy with someone else's shit, so if nothing important is at stake just let it flow. It's also usual to put people in their place by using dry humour and irony, that can work on some people. My family on my mother's side is particularly good at this. It is often impossible to know if my mom is being serious or not because she is able to speak with irony for several minutes while keeping a straight face and using a perfectly normal tone.
