Dara O Briain, Sarah Millican, Fern Brady, and Others Have Been Confirmed in the Taskmaster Series 1 ...

There is no one on your shoes until youve seen someone walk through a doorway in the longest shoes, and you know comedian comedians until you have seen them walk through a doorway that was quickly removed from the Taskmaster shed, then weep with Greg Davies for points. Taskmaster is a window into the hearts of our nations clowns, and heres whom they should be following in for series 14: Dara O Briain, Fern Brady, and Munya Chawawa!

(No, its still not Richard Ayoade. Perhaps we should try a gov.uk petition.)

It''s a very solid line-up of up-and-coming comics flanked by two household name comedians, and follows on from Ardal OHanlon, Bridget Christie, Chris Ramsay, and Judi Love (JUDI. LOVE.) and Sophie Dont call me Ducker Duker.

After winning every episode for the quality of her blagging, a crowning Sophie Duker rightful queen was never even winning any of the series, and Bridget Christie had developed a crippling knee-based Taskmaster dance, which will now be performed by schoolchildren across the United Kingdom on bank holidays.

If the tradition is followed, anticipate a Series 14 premiere on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom in September/October. Until then, here''s a wee introduction to the new faces grappling with the taskmasters'' strange demands.
