Taskmaster Overseas

We’ve already had a brief look at the New Zealand version of Taskmaster. But there are many international versions of the show, including one made for Comedy Central in the US.

As you can see, Alex Horne is still in attendance, here alongside Reggie Watts as the Taskmaster.

In Belgium, it’s called Het Grootste Licht, and aired on VTM.

In Denmark, it’s Stormester, which is still running after four series on TV 2.

The Finnish version started in 2020, and has had two series so far. It’s called Suurmestari.

Kongen Befaler is the Norwegian version, still running after three series on TVNorge.

Spain has it as Dicho Y Hecho, and it’s been running for five series now on La 1.

And in Sweden, it’s Bäst i Test, about to start its fifth series on SVT.
