Taskmaster set to become a live experience

If 100,000 fans show their interest...

Plans are under way for a new Taskmaster live experience.

Producers of the hit Channel 4 show say they will create a venue where fans can take part in the sort of ridiculous challenges seen on air – if there is enough support from viewers.

They say that if more than 100,000 fans sign up to a mailing list, work on creating the project will go ahead.

Taskmaster Greg Davies and his assistant Alex Horne have released a video urging fans to sign up.

In it, they say: ‘This is a very important message for the Taskmaster community. 

‘A lot of people have asked us whether we’ve ever considered doing a Taskmaster Live experience. So that you glorious people at home could actually take part in the same ludicrous tasks that so-called comedians do. 

‘To compete, to be the ultimate Taskmaster champion, could now be the time? Do you want this? 

‘If so, please sign up to the Taskmaster live experience mailing list. If we get 100,000 sign ups then we’ll know, and Taskmaster the live experience will become a thing soon…. Ish. 

‘So what are you waiting for? Sign up and become a hero. Your time starts now’.

There is already a Crystal Maze live experience in London and Manchester, a Cube live experience in Manchester and a  live version of board game Monopoly in the capital.
