Fresh from the end of the latest series and a brand new one-off special Taskmaster Champion of Champions special, a brand new series is on the way.

As ever, Greg Davies will be perched on his regal throne as the Taskmaster, while the doting Little Alex Horne scuttles about his master’s feet as they judge and adjudicate the new round of hopefuls in the ultimate quest for victory.

Taskmaster series 14 cast

The five contestants on the line up of the new series are:

Stand-up comedian and television presenter Dara Ó Briain (Mock The Week, BBC Two)

Stand-up comedian Fern Brady (Live At The Apollo, BBC One)

Stand-up, writer, and actor John Kearns (the only comedian to have won both the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for Best Show and best Newcomer)

Comedian, broadcaster and leading digital creator Munya Chawawa (BAFTA Nominated Race Around Britain, YouTube Originals)

Award-winning stand-up comedian Sarah Millican.

The new series of Taskmaster begins on Channel 4 on Thursday, 29 September at 9PM.

Episodes for the ten-part series will air weekly on TV or online via All 4.

A teaser shares: “The infallible Greg Davies is back, his mighty hands brandishing a mighty new series of Taskmaster above his mighty head, with his doting assistant Little Alex Horne nestled by his feet and subsiding on a diet of sausages and statistics. With loins girded they are poised to wreak havoc with the lives of five comics who must have known what they were signing up for yet went ahead and did it anyway.

“Across the series, Greg will be presented with visual evidence of the competence, or otherwise, of this cross-section of comics trying to complete a range of tasks that may or may not be useful in everyday life. Can they find pleasure in construction equipment? Can they play billiards with yoga balls? And, most crucially, can they laminate? Following careful reflection, the Taskmaster will generously award points and kind words to the best and less points and less kind words to the less best.”

For now you can catch up with the latest Champions of Champions special and past series of Taskmasters on All 4.
