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 the last task: turn the table upside down and build on the bottom

  • Whenever I finish an episode, I always tell myself, "Okay, that was the last one, I won't watch anymore so I don't burn through it all." Yeah, that doesn't work at all, lads.

  • I just realized they should’ve turned the table upside down before stacking potatoes on the table ‘bottom’. Then when measured from the table ‘top’, the potato tower would be automatically highest, almost no matter what! If they thought of it quick enough, they could dilly dally almost until time runs out, to do it. Then no one else can copy.

How many have already done this before seeing this show? (I have, and I did it again after pausing. Of course, it helps if you know what the William Tell Overture is...)

  • for the final challenge, if the tower was to be measured from the potato top to the highest potato (40:05)... they should've flipped the table over! then they get the whole length of the table as part of the tower height

  • This episode has introduced me to the fact that Brits have savoury waffles made of potatoes. My impression of that wouldn't be so bad if the picture on Wikipedia didn't show them on a plate next to various barely-solid-looking things.

    • @grmpf ah yes. well, it's that nototrious British staple the pile of bked beans in the pisture which may cause you worries.

    • @Anopheles Now Also, on a non-facetious note, the whole implication of the original comment is that I do think those waffles sound delicious. Whether I would have them with everything on that plate is a different story. ;)

  • The first task involving Patatas in the tree reminds me of a story book called Stuck by Oliver Jeffers. Of a boy named Floyd who gets his kite stuck in a tree. In order to get the kite "unstuck" he throws a myriad of items into the tree including a cat named Mitch. Very funny story and very funny challenge!
