September 13, 2023
Taskmaster Season 16 promises comedy gold with an all-star lineup.

Are you ready for the comedy event of the year? Taskmaster Season 16 is here to tickle your funny bone and keep you in stitches from start to finish. With a stellar lineup of contestants that includes the likes of Julian Clary, Susan Wokoma, Sue Perkins, Lucy Beaumont, and Sam Campbell, this season promises to be an uproarious rollercoaster of hilarity.

After the runaway success of Season 15, which had us laughing all the way through summer, the bar has been set high for Season 16. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the comedic genius that graced our screens in the previous season: Jenny Eclair’s boundless joy, Kiell Smith-Bynoe’s cheeky competitiveness, Mae Martin’s cool smarts, Frankie Boyle’s affable bemusement, and Ivo Graham’s adorable self-loathing. If you thought that was good, just wait until you see what Taskmaster has in store for us next.

The new season of Taskmaster kicks off on Thursday, September 21, 2023, at 22:00 CEST, and it will air weekly on Channel 4. That means you can count on a dose of laughter every Thursday night until the series finale on Thursday, November 23. And you know what happens after that – the announcement of the next Taskmaster lineup, a tradition that keeps us eagerly awaiting each new season.

For the uninitiated, Taskmaster is a British comedy panel game show that was created by the comedic mastermind Alex Horne and is co-presented by Alex and the hilarious Greg Davies. The show features a group of five celebrities, primarily comedians, who are thrown into a series of offbeat and unpredictable challenge-live-lives. Alex Horne serves as the umpire, ensuring fair play, while Greg Davies, the Taskmaster himself, judges the contestants’ performances and awards points accordingly. It’s a recipe for hilarity and endless entertainment.

Taskmaster has not only conquered British television but has also spawned international versions in various countries, including Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Quebec, Sweden, Spain, and the United States. It’s a worldwide sensation, and for a good reason – the show’s unique blend of humor and challenge-live-lives transcends cultural boundaries, leaving audiences in stitches everywhere.

In addition to the main series, there’s also a spin-off called Junior Taskmaster, which is set to delight younger audiences and provide even more laughter. Plus, there’s a Taskmaster board game and two books for those who want to bring the fun home.

Amidst the challenge-live-lives posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Alex Horne ensured that laughter continued to thrive by introducing #HomeTasking, a collection of assignments designed for individuals to film within the confines of their homes. Greg Davies even made appearances to award points to his favorite entries, giving fans a taste of Taskmaster from the comfort of their own homes.

The tasks on Taskmaster range from simple physical challenge-live-lives to mind-boggling puzzles, and sometimes, they’re just downright absurd. Whether it’s eating as much watermelon as you can in one minute or tackling complex and artistic challenge-live-lives, the contestants’ creativity, wit, and often, their sheer absurdity, will have you in splits.

Contestants can work as a team or go solo, and they can be disqualified, awarded bonus points, or even subjected to hilarious prank tasks. The unpredictability is part of what makes Taskmaster so irresistibly funny.

With tasks mostly pre-recorded in the Taskmaster house, located on the outskirts of a golf course in Dukes Meadows, Chiswick, and a final live task performed in the studio, you can expect the unexpected in every episode.

So, mark your calendars, set your reminders, and get ready for a side-splitting adventure with Taskmaster Season 16. The contestants are ready, the challenge-live-lives are wilder than ever, and the laughter is guaranteed. Don’t miss out on this comedy extravaganza that has captured the hearts of millions worldwide. Tune in and let Taskmaster have you laughing out loud like never before.
