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 a travesty that Tim's attempt is not in this video. This task was one of the ones that really got me into Taskmaster and the one I try to explain to others to get them into it. The simplicity of the task, the different ways the contestants handled it, the brilliant editing and then at the end Tim's fantastic handling of it. Watching it again was the reason I clicked on this. Shame on you, Taskmaster!

  • For anyone that is wondering the episode number is 3 series 1 I’m not joking, there is someone who actually complained and whined about the taskmaster not uploading the episode number and series number. The series number being on the description and the episode title was said in the video, “the poet and the egg”.

    • Because some people like it. The "traditional" breakfast tea is a blend of black teas that tend to go well with milk and sugar. After that it's a matter of preference whether you put it or not

  • 1 hour to do the task, and the task was, "Throw a bag of tea into a mugg the furthest distance" I would just go out to the road and toss a bag into hot water and have some tea for an hour. They did not say if it was distance from the house or distance between bag and mug.

  • As the task doesn't specify the furthest distance from what, they could have just taken a car or a bus somewhere, got off after about 59 minutes and then thrown a teabag into a cup in their hands. Also, Roisin used a ladder when there's a house with a roof she could have thrown the bags from...

    Sem BrysSem BrysUukausi sitten
    • On the podcast Alex talked about how the one big rule they tell people is they aren’t allowed to go on a roof for any reason. I guess it’s a health and safety thing lol. I’ve always wondered because I always think about using the roof for tasks

      Ash_EntropyAsh_Entropy20 päivää sitten
    • Yep, but I suspect the task was deliberately ambiguous to allow for contestants to get as inventive as they like. I'm surprised nobody tied it to something that heavy (like josh's golf ball) and throw it into the air and try and catch it in a mug- the task doesn't say the contestant has to measure the distance, after all. That would be on Alex to work out 🤣

    OrgaNikOrgaNikUukausi sitten
  • My first thought was to wet them and put a cup in a corner of the building outside. Tie the string around the bag to take out the wind drag. Stand at a 45-degree angle to the corner and you don't have to be very accurate at all since it will almost always bounce to the corner. With an hour to do that and then the fact you could add a bunch of cups, you'd be able to get 15-25 meters. Hilarious stuff though. I thought chicky was going to use the ladder to get on the top of the roof and then I was disappointed. LOL

    konayakonayaUukausi sitten
    • @dingo On further (no pun intended, honest) research, it appears that the previous definition is more commonly used in the US, but in the UK and elsewhere, furthest and farthest are fully interchangeable, so either is correct. Furthest is more common in the UK though, but if you say farthest, you're not incorrect. Ah, The English Language. No wonder nobody wants to play with us... 🤣

      Peter ClarkePeter ClarkeUukausi sitten
    • @Peter Clarke I've never heard that distinction. In fact, I don't think I'd ever say farthest. Perhaps it's an American thing.

      dingodingoUukausi sitten
    • @I.C. Turner I did start writing a reply to the OP, stating how "Furthest" was actually correct in the context of the title, given it is used to describe abstract distance ("who can throw a teabag the furthest?"), versus "Farthest," which is used to describe measured distances ("at 10.5 metres, Frank threw his teabag the farthest." but then I got distracted and decided to join in with espurious. He/she looked liked they were having more fun🤣

    • @Benjamin Archer No worries, and it's not arrogant to correct grammar or spelling sometimes- just always useful on youtube as in life: if you're going to do it, always check that you're right first :) Saying that, I checked last night, and read the thing about Farthest and Furthest have subtly different applications first, so said it in a comment further up, but that only really applies in the US, so then I got corrected as well, and had to go do a bit more research with my tail between my legs! Either way, we've all left this thread a little wiser and better equipped for the next yt battleground. so everyone's a winner 🤟

      Peter ClarkePeter ClarkeUukausi sitten

      Benjamin ArcherBenjamin ArcherUukausi sitten
    • Sorry to be that guy, BUT... Furthest and farthest are fully interchangeable in the UK, but even in the US, where they have subtly different applications (furthest is used for abstract distance- throw x the furthest) versus farthest which is normally used for measured distance (10.5 dogs was the farthest), you're still wrong, sorry. 🤣
