I wrote the Taskmaster Book partly because so many people were getting in touch asking for tasks that they could do. So if you’d like some tasks to do, why not buy the book!
It’s Lou Sanders who leads the pack at this early stage of Series 8, but there’s a long journey ahead for the five comics hoping to claim Greg Davies’s gilded head. With the Taskmaster’s keen admin enthusiast, Alex Horne, recording events, Joe Thomas struggles with the definition of a mammal, Iain Stirling devises an explosive chemistry experiment and Sian Gibson sends a NSFW text to Greg.
It's the series finale and Greg Davies needs several questions answered before awarding the winner with the Taskmaster trophy... Who has the most handsome relative? How much money is Al Murray willing to spend to win? And why is Rob Beckett in such a strop with a melon, some frozen peas and a bag of flour?
In the penultimate episode of the series, the five comedians try to impress Taskmaster Greg Davies by giving an item of clothing to a passing cyclist, whispering at an old man called Hugh and creating some very special effects. Meanwhile, Paul Chowdhry continues to interpret tasks in his unique way.
Greg Davies's onslaught of tasks don't get any easier. When Al Murray is confronted with an eggcup he goes to extreme lengths to maximise his point potential and Sara Pascoe takes a simple loaf of bread, a few balloons and swiftly becomes one of the greatest sporting minds of our time.
If you fancy staging your own Taskmaster event, at school, on a hen night, with cub scouts or at a family birthday, then please do! The Taskmaster book is a useful resource but a quick look around twitter and youtube will also show you how all sorts of people have had a go.
