Where to Stream Season 16

If you’re an American who loves British comedies, you may want to know how to watch Taskmaster in the US online for free to see the BAFTA-winning series’ newest season.

Taskmaster, which premiered on Channel 4 in 2015, is a comedy game show where a group of five celebrity comedians complete a series of challenges. The show is created by comedian and musician Alex Horne, who also hosts the series with comedian Greg Davies. Along with hosting Taskmaster, Horne serves as the umpire for each challenge, while Davies judges the performances and awards points on how well the contestants do. The concept for Taskmasters was first created by Horne at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010 before he secured a deal with Davies to adapt it for television. The show won the British Academy Television Award for Best Comedy and Comedy Entertainment Programme in 2020.

In an interview with Channel 4 in 2020, Horne revealed how the idea for Taskmaster came to him. “Eleven years ago, my wife and I had had a baby, so I didn’t go to Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in years,” he said. “Tim Key won the comedy award and I was sat at home with the baby feeling very jealous, genuinely. So, I set up a show for the following year and I invited 20 comics. I sent them all emails secretly, didn’t tell them who each other was, and said, ‘I’m starting a new competition which you can enter, I’m going to set you a different task every month.’ Mike Wozniak won it and Tim didn’t, so I was happy. And none of the comedians was Greg Davies.”

He also confessed that he didn’t expect the show to be as popular as it is now and run for more than a dozen. “It was on at midnight and only 150 people watched it but it got more word of mouth than it probably merited. It was one of those quirky Edinburgh things. So we did it again the following year, then Avalon said, ‘There’s something in this’, and we started pitching it as a TV show with Greg hosting,” he said. Horne also opened up about how he chose Davies as his co-host. “Well, I would challenge you to name anyone else who could do that job. He had all the elements that role needed, as well as being very funny and good off the cuff. I’d say his physical attributes lend itself to the role, but also the headmasterly qualities,” he said.
