Well, I'm still enjoying it, and Nick Mohammed just creases me up - the bit with him tying himself up to the camp-bed had me in hysterics. I think (unfortunately) Steve Pemberton is the sour-puss as he always looks disgruntled if he doesn't win the round, probably realising he's not as funny as he thought "on the hoof" so to speak

Yeah, something like Taskmaster or improv comedy generally is a different set of skills to writing and following a script, and not every performer can do both...

Stephen Merchant? Yes!

BUT Danny Dyer? NO bloody way - can't stand the twat. Him and that other Londoner Joe whatshisface, who is married to the bird with the huge set of gnashers. I'd love to punch him in the gob.

Well, I agree about Joe whatshisface who is married to the bird with the huge set of gnashers! but Danny Dyer is different IMO - to me he's one of those celebrities who comes across as naturally funny, to the extent that he's often more interesting on comedy panel shows than many of the actual comedians.

I just started watching Taskmaster and I'm just about to watch S1 Ep3. So far it's very funny. Although I've known about the show for some time, I've never actually seen it before now.

How much you have missed and to look forward to - I have burnt the first 9 series to DVD

A much better episode tonight! Each contestant had some funny moments. I particularly liked the watermelon task.

Steve Pemberton's "Living Mannequin" for me, which I thought was clever and hysterical, and despite the poor points she was given Sophie's Doggie one was a close second.

Steve's Mannequin was amazing! Quite League of Gents' Pauline-esque.
