Taskmaster

Sundays at 8.30pm

Show Synopsis

Greg Davies is the Taskmaster. With the help of his ever-loyal assistant Alex Horne he will set out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper-competitive, and sometimes unimpressed, stand-up comedians Roisin Conaty (Man Down), Tim Key (Mid Morning Matters With Alan Partridge), Romesh Ranganathan (Mock The Week), Frank Skinner (Room 101) and Josh Widdicombe (The Last Leg).

With the chance of being crowned Taskmaster Champion, and to win each other's actual prized belongings, expect cheating. Expect arguments. Expect both cheating AND arguments.

Taskmaster

As the Taskmaster Greg Davies will set a series of stupefying tasks to test our comedians. From eating a watermelon as fast as possible to painting a picture of a horse while riding a horse, they will be tested to the absolutely limits of absurdity.

As the Taskmaster's devoted associate, Alex Horne is on hand to keep track of the scores and coax the contenders to show their creativity, conniving side and competitiveness.

Rivalry will be encouraged, dodgy tactics rewarded and bribes obviously accepted in what is set to be the most dogged, hard-fought, and ridiculous comedy game show on television.
