Taskmaster season 15 cast: Meet the line-up of comedians
Alex Horne and Greg Davies are putting another cast of comedians to the test.
It may have been just a few months since Dara Ó Briain won the last season of Taskmaster, however the Channel 4 competition is back to find yet another victor.
As always, the eclectic mix of up-and-coming comics and comedy legends are making up the Taskmaster line-up, from circuit regular Ivo Graham to edgy stand-up Frankie Boyle.
Meanwhile, Feel Good's Mae Martin is making their return to the screen with the upcoming season alongside Ghosts' Kiell Smith-Bynoe.
Thankfully, this won't be the final season of Taskmaster, with Channel 4 recently renewing the series and commissioning a Junior Taskmaster spin-off – but what do we know about the comedians who'll be "locating spoons, cracking jelly baby codes or demonstrating the power of a single breath" in this week's premiere?
