This Tuesday sees the last episode in the current series of Dave’s Taskmaster series, and the final episode sees Tim Key and Frank Skinner and Josh Widdicombe, Roisin Conaty and Romesh Ranganathan attempt to make a You’ve Been Framed! style blooper video. Let’s see how they got on with their home video disaster…
Greg Davies is the Taskmaster, and with the help of his loyal assistant Alex Horne he has set out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of the five hyper-competitive comedians. With the chance to be crowned Taskmaster champion, and to win each other’s actual belongings the series so far has brought a series of stupefying tasks to test our group of comedians, before deciding who should be victorious.
As the Taskmaster’s assistant, Alex Horne has coaxed the contenders to show their creativity, conniving and competitiveness; rivalry is to be encouraged, dodgy tactics rewarded and bribes accepted in what has to be the most dogged, hard-fought and ridiculous comedy show on TV.
Taskmaster started out as a critically acclaimed live show, devised by 2014 Foster’s Comedy Award nominee Alex Horne, which ran at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010 and 2011. The final, sixth edition, airs Tuesday September 1st at 10pm on UKTV channel Dave.
