Channel 4 confirm Taskmaster start date

If you’re fan of Taskmaster and have been wondering when it’s going to start on Channel 4, wonder no more.

It has been confirmed that the brand new series will launch on Channel 4 on Thursday 15 October. Daisy May Cooper, Johnny Vegas, Katherine Parkinson, Mawaan Rizwan & Richard Herring will face the Taskmaster Greg Davies and Little Aledx Horne in just a few weeks.

The hugely entertaining irreverent show hosted by Greg Davies as the all-powerful “Taskmaster”, alongside Alex Horne as his loyal assistant, sets out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper competitive comedians through a series of strange and surreal challenges.  It started as a live show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe before being developed for television, initially with Channel 4.  It was later commissioned by UKTV for Dave where it has aired for nine very successful series.
