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.

  • These videos are 100% keeping me going 😂

  • Complete psychopath 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Suzie dent in a taskmaster video? I love that! Never enough suzie out there 😊 unless of course you're one of the hundreds she captures and holds you against your will to sit and watch her tours. How else is selling any of those tickets lol

  • "four months..."

  • I remember in school we'd be given silly challenges similar to these and I'd always try to think outside the box with solutions like in this video, but then I was always told that it was against the rules or that it wasn't the intended method so I was wrong.

  • I dont know why im here, its 3am and this is interesting

  • GILBERT!

  • 17:54 Part of what would determine whether he was in the right or not would be if there was a comma between "on the yoga mat" and "on the top of that hill"

  • What the hell did NOwine just recommend to me?

  • Fun fact you didn’t search for this

  • I dont understand it but I love how susie sent has become a staple of the british comedic world

  • This whole channel has jigsaw vibes. I freaking love it.

  • I still don't get the first one. "Tie yourself up" = Tie Alex up?

  • I love Rhod but a decent rigger he is not. 😂😂

  • Anyone wanna buy some pills

  • NOwine recommended this to me, and I've never heard of it. My best guess is that this is a game where two hosts wait for a random bystander to read a task and attempt it. Once they begin the attempt, they're recruited into the game show. Doesn't matter if I'm right or wrong. This was fun to watch and I want more.

    • 4 days later, I'm 4 seasons deep and I feel terrible for not realizing that these are British celebrities and not people from the streets. Still, this is a damn good show.

  • The one with the yoga mat on top of the hill was genius by Richard.

  • *spoilers* The Smallest Gap was brilliant. I thought.. is that the smallest gap store in the world, surely not.. but, being baby gap, smallest type of gap store, that just makes it genius.

  • I am much too stoned, what the fuck is this

  • The last one was kinda bs. "On the top of that hill" yea sure... The title of this video is "Contestants Who Understood The Assignment" and he obviously didn't understand the challenge.

    • There’s 2 ways to interpret it: 1) You place the balls on the mat when it’s at the top of the hill. 2) You place the balls on the mat, which can be found at the top of the hill. The 2nd interpretation, which merely uses “on top of that hill” as an identifier to avoid confusion as to where the mat is and nothing more, does not require the mat to actually be on top of that hill. Thus is the ambiguity of the English language, and probably other languages but I can’t speak most of them.

  • Am I the only one that's never seen this and is disappointed? I thought of all of these appart from the gap one and that was just dumb. I was expecting more

  • the ammount of tasks you could exceedingly solve just by using good duct tape is astonishing xD

  • this is amazing. i might set up something similar for my family.

  • Benny Harvey RIP I'll miss ya big guy, GBNF

    • Taskmaster? More like Loophole master haha

  • She's ctually genius

  • Russel is funny as all hell

  • The noise during the basketball scene is terrible, anti ASMR.

  • i want to be on this show so bad.

  • When she went to the baby gap… perfection.

  • Rhod Gilbert tying up Alex is the greatest solution to a task and perfectly sums up Rhod's approach to Taskmaster

  • I like this video. ANOTHER.

  • 5:19 is that the guy from the mighty boosh

  • Just take the hard bit of the challenge and change it and you win. 😂

  • I love this 😂😂😂

    • "Oooh I can't see the colors!" XD

  • to be fair the last task specifies the location of the mat therefore changing the position of the mat would be breaking the rules

    • @georgemln The rules as far as meaning are concerned are about grammar and sementics. The meaning of the rules have to be defined, unquestionably, in the envelope provided to contestants. Since the rules do not state unquestionably (that is with certain grammatical clarity) that the balls must be placed at the top of the hill, then the rule cannot hold.

    • @Andy Smith you haven't countered mine either,also the one u said about the drawer, is not a good argument for a second,reason besides being "advice instead of rule"that u don't seem to understand.its also impossible to teleport inside the drawer.when your teacher tells you to be in an conference at 9 a.m at your university,u have to go to your university it's part of the obligation of the whole sentence,just because it doesn't have and in the sentence doesn't mean it's not obligated and it's just for "locating something"

    • @georgemln yeah, it's an argument you haven't countered. I don't need more.

    • @Andy Smith lol NC argument,u keep mentioning the same argument,come up with more If u want me to continue the conversation,I just feel like there are many ways of reading between the lines when things are not completely specified therefore it's fine to disagree,now if u think u are 100% right go converse with a wall

    • @georgemln if you can't counter my point, then sure.

  • Oh, I would have won 4/4 of these (discounting the ball on tradmill as it was shown earlier). Thought I'd have been wrong with "The Gap", it was all that came to mind, but seemed too far fetched (I don't know the show). Not being well connected to the physical world has many drawbacks, but the positives are often fun. :)

  • See, for painting the rainbow I would have just pulled out my phone and turned on it’s flashlight feature…

  • These are werid tasks. Expected like am escape room or something

  • This game is about being a smart ass

  • I won a contest that was to "put 5 balls into a small container without going past a barricade" so I moved the barricade. I have also won bets (that I did not collect) by saying "I bet I can toss this (Ball of paper) into that trash bin...." that was far away... they take the bet and I walk over to it and drop it it.

  • Taskmaster? More like Loophole master haha

  • Always wondered... With the Yogaballs one... If they like.... Popped the Balls... Would that be fine? Like can they destroy the props???

    • @AUS Grizzly Yeah, I was thinking the same thing until they read that line. Just deflate them all and run up the hill, though deflating may take longer. cut them if you have a knife on you maybe.

    • @J was it? Must have missed that.

    • One of the rules was "fully inflated"

  • E

  • Can’t fit a camel through the eye of a needle. Surprised no one else picked up on this idiom.

  • “Contestants who love or hate Alex” would be a great one

  • What a title lmao

  • *Puts Alex in a dehydrator*

  • "Oooh I can't see the colors!" XD

  • Would've gotten all of these except the gap one. I had no idea that the "baby gap" thing even existed. I would've chosen a more... Violent approach...

  • Inbetweeners have ruined Greg for me. When he was looking through clear plastic I expected him to yell "Mckenzie!"

  • I Actually thought of the yoga mat one

  • i havent seen this but id be so dissapointed if it doesn't include the 'don't blink' challenge where NOBODY THOUGHT TO JUST CLOSE THEIR EYES

    • This show is just a huge case of "if it's stupid but it works, it ain't stupid"

  • How does Joe always come back with the perfect response? 😄

  • ah fuck, guess it’s time to binge clips of british tv shows again

  • JESUS LOVES YALL 💘💖❤💕💗💓💘💖❤💕💗💓💘💖❤💕💗💓💘💖❤💕💗💓

  • What do u think about this: Task says whoever alex takes to untie the slowest wins. What if they didn’t tie themselves up in the first place. Then they could never be untied therefore Alrx wouldn’t have been able to do what was needed. Would’ve been nice to see someone do that. But I guess they would have said, but that means u are released so a time of 0 seconds would’ve been awarded.

    • One of the rules was that you tied yourself up tho.

  • The mighty boosh. I'm old greg!

  • We are lucky Rhod Gilbert decided to take a go at comedy and not world domination.

  • Why couldn't Alex just ask the cameraman to untie him when Rhod was done?

  • So was the "tie yourself up as securely as possible" part of the scenario rules of no consequence? Just fluff?

    • Yes, but by no standard of "as securely as possible," which was the crux of my point.

    • He had a rope around his wrists, thats being tied up!

  • The task where they have to tie themselves up and that look of realization when the siren goes? Comedy gold

  • 6:20 I would have tried to duct rape the ball to the front XD

  • BORING!!!

    • Rhod Gilbert: the best to ever play the game. Bar none.

  • 0:22 Hubert Cumberdale, is that you?!

  • this vdeo was realesed on my bday

  • I would've popped the yoga balls.

    • @Andy Smith Ah, I watch at 2.5x speed to save time and then faulty memory does the rest of the damage.

    • "fully inflated" was one of the rules.

  • on the last task it says at the end, "the task is complete when all 3 balls sit fully inflated and stationary on the mat." so Richard was right.

  • This show is just a huge case of "if it's stupid but it works, it ain't stupid"

    • I think its more of "how much of a smartass can you be?"

  • 16:21 How I would’ve completed the task: Ask Alex if he has a ball pump, if not go shopping, find one and come back, deflate the balls, carry them up the hill, and inflate them on the mat.

    • that's what i thought was gonna happen

  • I'm only watching this cause NOwine recommended it and i don't understand the title...

  • How about tasks where the answer was right in front of the contestants

  • 0:01 dude looks like an elf from skyrim

  • I haven't been aware of this show until watching this clip just now. How typical are the solutions that were presented in this clip? Were these the only times when the contestants thought outside the box? In other words, if I loved this clip, is it likely that I will like watching this show?

    • @chloe megan Thank you. I have got to check it out!

    • also the side by side of people messing it up and the people like this video doing it perfectly makes it better lol

    • more than just the people in this video have done tasks in this way, i think you’ll enjoy the show with or without out of the box thinking as it’s always entertaining

  • Rhod Gilbert is absolutely wasted in comedy, with lateral thinking like that, he would have made a hell of a good smuggler...

  • how similar is unplugging the hose before the shower versus just unplugging the running machine before the task?

  • For that yoga ball on hill task, I've always thought you'd just have to deflate the balls and carry them up there. Alternatively, if the balls aren't saggy enough, I'd elicit some help and carry them up there.

  • awesome

  • Rhod Gilbert: the best to ever play the game. Bar none.

  • Inbetweeners have ruined Greg for me. When he was looking through clear plastic I expected him to yell "Mckenzie!"

  • Tim Vine puns | Taskmaster

  • Never heard of this show in my life before this showed up in my recommended videos tonight and I feel cheated that it didn't happen sooner.

    • Scraping the barrel for entertainment this

  • Getting cocky with those no skip ads every couple of minutes eh 🤨

  • Isn't the plug a part of the running machine?

  • just the deadpan "im coming now"

  • They have no clue how to tie a basic knot

  • A comma would have clarified the yoga mat challenge: Place these 3 exercise balls on top of the yoga mat, on top of the hill.

    • I still think that's ambiguous. Changing the word order would have done it. "Place these 3 exercise balls on the top of the hill on the yoga mat."

  • Making the ice disappear by throwing it in the river was brilliant and should have been in here lol.

  • See now, i would have just gotten a knife (or preferably a knitting needle), broken the ball, and put it on the handles with the knife (or knitting needle). Sitting like that looks exhausting.

  • As clever as these are, if all anyone ever did was cheat the system, the show would be far less enjoyable. I hope they got zero points.

  • So this in another video with the same 10 clips we've regurgitated the past year ? Just in another order, for this channel to get some more ad revenue ?

  • Rhod Gilbert: the best to ever play the game. Bar none.

    • He was very average at the game I thought. Hugh Dennis was the master at the actual tasks but was terrible at the prize tasks

  • richard didnt understand it unusually i would have done the same thing

  • This is just brilliant.

  • Scraping the barrel for entertainment this

    • So why are you here then? Too stupid to not watch or just a sad little troll? Both?

  • “Would you like something for lunch?” “Yes please, something sharp” Should have brought him some slices of sharp cheddar cheese

  • "I'll get you" is an underrated quote from the tie-yourself-up task

  • richard osman and the yoga mat changed the entire show forever. no hyperbole

  • I wish for every task they had someone from the crew or something complete the task in the MOST clever way possible. That is if one of the contestants hadn't already done it that way.

  • So, this may be because I'm not an English native, but why did the first one work? The task was to tie themselves but he tied the conductor, what's the workaround to make it be valid? Or is it because his tying was so "secure" that the conductor couldn't untie him... because the conductor couldn't move?

    • I think it was the 2nd part. Alex was tied up so well he couldn’t untie Rhod and that task was to take the longest to be untied. Rhod eventually untied himself I presume

  • 4:04 is that f1 driver George Russell?

    • I don't think James Acaster looks anything like an F1 driver.
