Trivia

Before it became a TV show, Taskmaster was tested when Alex Horne sent 20 comedians monthly tasks by email over the course of a year. At the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, he hosted "The Taskmaster" show where he revealed the players' attempts at each task and announced the winner. Horne hosted "Taskmaster II" the following year with ten contestants. See more »

No other show like it... in fits every time I watch it!
8 August 2019 | by steelthroughSee all my reviews

I've watched all seasons multiple times and it still has me in fits. No other show has me laughing like this one. The relationship between Greg and Alex is hysterical and I couldn't imagine any other duo pulling it off like they do. The mix of comedians is great and I've since gone on to enjoy many of them in other TV shows. The wait for each new season is unreal but totally worth it each and every time!
