Episode 8: What Kind of Pictures?

Summary

Russell Howard uses ear wax to charm a nice lady called Carol, Asim Chaudhry goes digging for invertebrates and Liza Tarbuck makes a puzzle for children.

Review

By the standards of Taskmaster – and if we’re being really harsh – this is perhaps a slightly less sparky episode than some. But of course it’s still a great watch – funny, silly, surreal, charming, imaginative and a bit rude. In fact, forget I said that it wasn’t sparky; by all normal TV yardsticks, it is.

Tim Vine is on good form, not least when showing off the Big Toe Bobble Hat his mother knitted him, which leads to a chat about swearing and host Greg Davies suggesting he’d love to hear Tim “drop the C-bomb”. Cue audience laughter as Tim replies, “Crikey?” Otherwise there’s talk of verruca socks, water boatmen, Jeremy Irons and the Titanic.
