Well that was fun. Last night it began again with season 6. 5 new comedian/contestants vie to Taskmaster Greg Davies favor to win the show. Expect some random tasks and some comedic gold as we go through the 10 weeks(!!!) of shows.
If you dont know about the show
This little gem of a show found on UKTV Dave, is a classic idea of a game-show format rejigged and re-energized with a comedic energy. Several Tasks are set and the comedians compete to complete the task the best. However the call of who does best is down to the Taskmaster Greg Davies. So in some cases, he will allow cheating or not, deduct points or give extra points. So that adds to the show greatly.
Tasks like – Put a basketball through the hoop without touching it with your hands. You think it will be easy but its not – then you see them doing it in most random ways.
How about painting a horse, whilst riding a horse!!!
For those of you knowing Season 6
“Who will join that pretty little pantheon? Alice Levine, Asim Chaudhry, Liza Tarbuck, Russell Howard or Tim Vine? No one yet knows, but after ten punishing episodes one of them will lift aloft Greg’s almighty golden head in a moment of obscene glory.”
Each will bring their own flavour of comedy to the show. Having seen episode 1 and 2, you are in for a treat. No Spoilers from me.
