Taskmaster is a British comedy panel game show originally created by British comedian Alex Horne during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010, and transferred to television on Dave in 2015. The TV series stars comedian and actor Greg Davies now in the titular role of the Taskmaster, issuing simple comedic and bizarre tasks to five regular contestants – usually comedians – with Horne acting as Davies's assistant and umpire during the challenges. The show has aired for five series plus a two-part “Champion of Champions” special which began on 13 December and concluded on 20 December 2017. On 22 February 2018, it was announced that the show had been commissioned for four new series; series 6 began airing on 2 May 2018.

International versions of the programme have been made in Belgium (as Het Grootste Licht), Sweden (as Bäst i test), and a US version with Reggie Watts and Horne began in April 2018.
