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.

    TrimmienTrimmienMåned siden
    • @Julie E No, further/furthest cannot be correctly applied to literal distances

      TrimmienTrimmienMåned siden
    • In this context wouldn't either be correct though? Both can be used when describing distance, but if you have more abstract context, then you'd use "furthest" only?

      Julie EJulie EMåned siden
    • @David Lewis Exactly, but the point is that the contestants could’ve used that as a loophole-shooting the soccer ball from a foot away while being despondent and verbally reluctant to talk to Alex would’ve been the “furthest” (in emotional distance)

      TrimmienTrimmienMåned siden
    • Is a pretty simple rule. Distance=farthest, hopes and dreams=furthest. I guess I did feel a need to point out something that simple.

    GroovingPictGroovingPictMåned siden
    • On an uneven lawn from 34 meters it's actually not that easy to score a goal. I've seen premier league players miss far easier shots on an empty goal (albeit with a bit more pressure). He should score there, but it's by no means a given.

      Edward VEdward VMåned siden
  • I would have turned around and shot the ball through the treeline and make any two trees where the ball passes through my goal. As a kid you sometimes had to improvise a goal like that. I would've somehow make it miss anyway though 😅

      Angel OkoroAngel OkoroMåned siden
    • @Angel Okoro Rewatch the video from the start, and pay attention to Iain, keeping in mind that he knows exactly how poorly he did. Tell me: where exactly does he even slightly let on that he's not having fun in the lead up to his attempt being shown? To me, he seems to be genuinely enjoying it. Also "that groan"? Wtf are you talking about, it was less than a second and was a very momentary cry of defeat. Litertally every contestant has made a similar noise at such crushing defeats. It's not Iain's fault they replayed that groan 5 times.

      PokemonTom09PokemonTom09Måned siden
    • @PokemonTom09 The immediate reaction, that painful groan, the way he tries to suppress his anger every time he fails. He tries his best to cover it up and smile, I agree with you there. There have been other competitive guests, like Rhod Gilbert for example. But it always seemed to act in good fun, and Ian rarely looks like he's actually enjoying himself.

      Angel OkoroAngel OkoroMåned siden
    • Literally what about this task did he do that you disliked? He had a brilliant solution to the task, failed anyway, and despite that was still smiling through the whole thing. He didn't disparage anyone else, and made light of his own shortcomings. Yeah, he is overly competitive, but absolutely none of that comes through here in this task.

  • Why couldn't the US version be like this? It's super garbage.

    Brian KwiatkoskiBrian KwiatkoskiMåned siden
    • Never heard of a US version. Does it go by "Taskmaster"? No doubt it sucks.

      David LewisDavid LewisMåned siden
    • I think it was actually on CW or some other network TV station no one cares about.

      Brian KwiatkoskiBrian KwiatkoskiMåned siden
    • I didn’t even know there was an American version, what streaming service is it on?

      Trevor HardyTrevor HardyMåned siden
    • The biggest problem with the US version is that the duration is 30 minutes instead of 60 minutes. With ads you get 20 minutes of the show which hardly leaves any time for banter. In the original taskmaster, Greg seems all powerful and isn't afraid to humiliate anyone. Reggie is not as acerbic as Greg. Also, it has the same tasks which makes it a bit boring for those who have already seen the UK version.

    • @L33TTechReviewer Soccer goals are usually stored back to back at parks for league games so it was probably fairly easy to get as long as they got a key for the lock. If it was on the next field over it probably only took a minute or two to set it all up

    • I’m pretty sure they filmed both those tasks in the same field, and alex has the same can of spray paint in both. So that makes 3 deja vu moments weirdly. The taskmaster simulation is glitching i guess😂
