Series 3, Episode 1 - Pea In A Haystack
Taskmaster returns to Dave for another series of unreservedly tricky tasks and questionably brilliant attempts as five fresh competitors go head-to-head in the desperate hope of winning the most hallowed priz in comedy - the gilded bonce of the Taskmaster himself - Greg Davies.
Greg judges, pontificates and remprimands with absolute power while Alex Horne returns to assist him and prove once and for all that he knows both how to oversee a task and wear a suit at the same time - each with immaculate precision. And this series they have their work cut out for them because the contestants have never been more cunning.
How will the five stand-ups stand up to several hurdles and a microwave? How does one spread one's clothes as far and as wide as possible? And what is the best way to surprise Alex Horne when he emerges from his shed after an hour cooped up inside? The five rivals will have to use every nugget of creativity and genius they have to prove their worth. And, for those wondering - this season's featured vegetable is the humble pea. Small vegetable; colossal series.
