In this Broadcast Award-winning, BAFTA and Emmy Award-nominated entertainment show, Taskmaster tyrant Greg Davies (Man Down, Cuckoo), with the help of his loyal assistant Alex Horne (The Horne Section and the show’s creator), sets out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper-competitive comedians.
Comedians that have risked life, limb, and dignity in the hope of making the Taskmaster proud so far include: Frank Skinner (The Frank Skinner Show), Mel Giedroyc (The Great British Bake Off), Romesh Ranganathan (Asian Provocateur), Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones’ Diary), Rose Matafeo (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2018), and Russell Howard (The Russell Howard Hour). Unaware of what awaits them in each wax-sealed envelope, only one competitor can become the victorious owner of His Royal Task-ness’ golden head and be crowned the next Taskmaster Champion.

    it's so funny that the first thing Katherine did when she saw the mirror was pull a duck face. and then proceeded to not find the duck face.

    2020 has been a crazy year! But luckily series10 of taskmaster is even crazier. I always come back to these videos after a long day of social distancing and border line self harming hand sanitizing to bring back a little happiness into my life. The cocktail task, backward recording task, and the ‘elephant’ and ‘dolphin ’ live task have been my go to bedtime clips. Thank you Little Alex Horne for bringing Taskmaster into my life. Best wishes all the way from Indonesia.... Your next task is to put “-“ where it belongs ( because i can’t be bothered). Your time starts.......NOW!!!!

    Alright at this point daisy is lisa 2.0 Her drawing was utter shit but still rated better than almost anyone elses. The Series with clear favoritism ruin my enjoyment in the actual achievements of the people. I like Daisy but how can you cheef for someone that wins no matter what

    Mawaan’s cocktail might be one of my favourite moments from this series and possibly the whole show. The whole thing was funny, but his moment of realization when he says “I think I’ve found a loophole” and the evil grin he gives Alex. I fucking lost it.

    Interesting episode, both Johnny and Mawaan played completely out of character with Johnny actually being competent and Mawaan proving his smarts. Somewhat giving grace to what has thus far been the worst Taskmaster series, I guess they ran out of British comedians somewhere around series 6-7.

    I feel obliged to point out that at no point in the show is the word "hippopotamus" uttered. They do say "hippo" quite a lot. Instead of being annoyed at this, I am very pleased. Because my mother is fond of "hippos". And this episode is a magnificent way to introduce taskmaster to her and spread the TM-virus. In our house we just call those large, happy looking, but easily disgruntled creatures: "hippos". We know it´s incorrect and just means: "horse" in Latin.. (potamus means river, I believe.. It´s a riverhorse ofcourse ofcourse) I feel we, as a family, have some sort of special dispensation for this affectionate, abbreviatory nomenclature, because she used to have more than a thousand of their miniturised likenesses in the houses where I grew up. And we had to move about twenty boxes of hippos each time we moved. She gave most of them away, mostly because in the plural hippopotamusseseses or even hippopotami are just too hard to pronounce and to a lesser degree because she moved to a smaller house.
