Nominated for: Best Returning Format

Produced by: Avalon
For: Channel 4
Distributed by: Avalon Distribution

In the format, the Taskmaster and his personal assistant set five top comedians a series of bizarre, tricky and often ingenious tasks, which push them to the limits of comic invention. With their personal possessions up for grabs, they have everything to play for, especially their dignity.

Taskmaster is an anti-panel show that’s part sitcom, part competition and part reality show. It’s a comic’s show with universal appeal - allowing comedians to be the naturally funny people they are whilst also having a play-along-at-home factor as viewers frequently discuss how they’d attempt the tasks or better what’s been done before them.
