Taskmaster (Comedy Central) – Premieres 27th April
US version of the UK comedy panel show, where Reggie Watts resides as the Taskmaster, who assisted by Alex Horne, sets the five celebrity contestants various simple, lateral thinking, challenges to be completed.
Differing to the UK version, this is about half the runtime so there is a reduction of the amount of challenges in each episode. Along with the opening prize round just being one of the contestants putting forward a personal item as the prize for the episodes winner.
Along with the reduction in in the challenges this version also feels rushed, as the usual mocking chat of the original that happens after witnessing the attempts is pretty much non existent.
All in all it’s a pretty poor imitation of the original.
