Stand-up and actor Ardal O’Hanlon is of course best recognised round these parts for playing Father Dougal in Channel 4’s Father Ted and Thermoman in sitcom My Hero, but more recently he played DI Moloney in BBC One’s Death in Paradise. See him discuss his favourite moment from Father Ted with Tommy Tiernan above.
Award-winning stand-up, writer and broadcaster, Bridget Christie is a big name on the live comedy circuit whose Netflix special Stand Up For Her comes highly recommended. In lieu of a bit of that, watch her show early Taskmaster promise by rolling down a corridor after some cheese above, as prompted by Harry Hill (who absolutely needs to be booked for a future series.)
Judi Love is a stand-up, Loose Women panellist, and earlier this year was briefly the best thing to happen to Strictly Come Dancing since the BBC started broadcasting in HD. Watch her do a tight five on the much-missed Harry Hill’s Club Nite (Harry Hill for Taskmaster Series 13. Make it happen.)
Here’s a bit of stand-up, TV presenter and writer Chris Ramsey to publicise his current tour. What you really want to watch though, is him doing a street dance to PJ and Duncan’s Let’s Get Ready to Rhumble, so here’s that too. Unlikely to embarrass easy, is our prediction.
Stand-up, actor and podcaster Sophie Duker recently appeared on BBC One’s Live at the Apollo and has made regular appearances on satirical news programme Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and other TV panel shows. Listen to her on Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Podcast here.
Taskmaster Series 13 will air on Channel 4 in 2022.
