‘Taskmaster’ Hosted by Reggie Watts Premieres on Comedy Central Next Month

Last year, Comedy Central ordered a game show from Reggie Watts called Taskmaster, and today the network released the trailer and premiere date. Hosted by Watts with co-host/creator Alex Horne, the half-hour series is based on the British game show of the same name and judges “five unwitting comedians as they compete against each other with creativity, cunning and genius in a series of stupefying tasks.” Kate Berlant, Lisa Lampanelli, Ron Funches, Freddie Highmore, and Dillon Francis are the contestants who will compete throughout the season, and the one who racks up the most points at the end will earn a trophy and “become the ultimate champion of Taskmaster.” Check out the trailer above, and catch the rest when the show makes its Comedy Central debut with two back-to-back episodes on Friday, April 27th at 11:00pm.
