Taskmaster started off as a live show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, before airing on Dave for nine series and has now been acquired by Channel 4.
Greg Davies will once again sit on his throne with his trusty sidekick Alex Horne and score the comedians attempts at one of a kind wacky tasks, with hilarious and unpredictable outcomes.
The contestants hoping to be crowned the champion of the first series of Taskmaster since its move to Channel 4 are, actor and writer Daisy May Cooper (This Country), comedian, writer and director Johnny Vegas (Benidorm), actor Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd), comedian and actor Mawaan Rizwan and comedian, podcaster and writer Richard Herring (RHLSTP with Richard Herring).
Once the wax seal is broken, the contestants will need to compete to show their skill and wit to master Horne’s comedic challenges.
Taskmaster was nominated for an RTS Award for Best Entertainment Show in 2017 and there is now a board game and book called 200 Extraordinary Tasks for Ordinary People, so now anyone can join in.
The new series will air on Channel 4 this Autumn.
