Taskmaster settles into its new home on Channel 4, as Greg Davies and Alex Horne put Daisy May Cooper, Johnny Vegas, Katherine Parkinson, Mawaan Rizwan and Richard Herring to the ultimate test
BAFTA-winning game show. Taskmaster Greg Davies and his sidekick Alex Horne test the wit of Daisy May Cooper, Johnny Vegas, Katherine Parkinson, Mawaan Rizwan and Richard Herring.
Johnny Vegas yells from a tall chair, Katherine Parkinson forgets how balloons work and Richard Herring flails around in a dinghy.
Mawaan Rizwan attempts a farm-related illusion in the hope of impressing domineering Taskmaster Greg Davies. Plus: pasta disasters and catapult calamities.
Daisy flirts with a security guard, Richard is surprised by some chickens and Johnny convinces Alex to wear sparkly shoes while operating heavy machinery.
The competing comics demonstrate their love of watermelon and Johnny tries to win points by grabbing a passing cyclist and introducing him to some Christmas-related equipment.
Daisy May Cooper gets rather cross, Mawaan Rizwan learns a lesson about waterfowl and Richard Herring wrings out a wet sock
Mawaan is not at all fazed when faced with a task involving office chairs, chickens and remote control cars, although the same cannot be said of his rivals. Daisy tries to decipher mysterious messages from Richard, and Katherine is baffled by a giant marble
Alex Horne gets an acting role, while Richard Herring delivers a star turn from behind a bush. Mawaan Rizwan nicks a cup of tea. Johnny Vegas takes a tumble.
The comics go all out to win in the semi-final: Richard Herring bleeds on beer mats, Mawaan Rizwan volleys oranges and Katherine Parkinson counts plastic balls.
