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!
Jo Brand demonstrates an impressive grasp of street slang, Katy Wix uses a long part of her body to steal something sweet and David Baddiel takes a sledgehammer to a tricky problem. Plus, another former champion, Katherine Ryan, makes a dramatic return to the studio!
Jo Brand shows cowboys how to cowboy, Katy Wix tortures Alex Horne with the help of a garden arch and Rose Matafeo asks a stranger if they have a library card. Plus, after Katy Wix falls ill during the studio records, former champion Kerry Godliman swoops in to take her place, but how will she fare on Katy's behalf?
Ed Gamble gets reckless with a frying pan, Katy Wix asks for a pencil and Jo Brand shares a leisurely sandwich with David Baddiel. Alex Horne is there to log all the important minutiae, which he later presents to Greg in a special private ceremony that no one has ever witnessed.
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.
