Episode 6: A Chair in a Sweet

Summary

Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell attempt seemingly pointless tasks testing their ingenuity, dexterity and calmness under pressure. This week, Desiree attempts to affix tennis balls to gaffer tape, Victoria tries to construct a rudimentary pulley system, while Alan finds out how many circles he can carry. Presented by Greg Davies and Alex Horne

Review

The undeniable star of this week’s show is Marco. He has an integral part to play in one of the tasks, but moreover, he’s utterly adorable. Incidentally, he also happens to be a dog. Making the most engaging toy for him is a standout task of the episode, whilst Alex Horne trying to engage with and instruct Marco as though he’s one of the comedians adds another layer of comedy value to what is a brilliantly silly endeavour.

Meanwhile, in what can only be described as an act of self-sabotage, Victoria Coren Mitchell forgets her glasses on more than one occasion; thus struggling immeasurably with not only what she has to do but where and how she has to do it. As if Taskmaster wasn’t tricky enough…
