Taskmaster, a new series devised by and starring Alex, has been commissioned by UKTV’s Dave channel.
The six-hour long episodes will star Greg Davies in the role of The Taskmaster, who will set tasks to a group of well-known comedians and ultimately decide who wins. Alex will be playing his right-hand-man, coaxing the comedians to show how comic, creative and seriously competitive they are.
Taskmaster started out as a live show, also devised by Alex, which ran at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010 and 2011. You can see a clip from the 2010 show below.
