An Evening with Alex Horne from TV’s Taskmaster

Award-winning comedian Alex Horne is the creator and co-host of the BAFTA-nominated TV show Taskmaster, now made and shown all over the world. Alex also co-hosts the American version with Reggie Watts on Comedy Central. He has played to sold-out audiences for five consecutive years at the Edinburgh Fringe, has had three series on BBC Radio 4 and recently recorded a two-hour special for UKTV at the London Palladium.

Build yourself a box and think outside of it. Your time starts now …

In the TV show and on my marriage certificate, my job description is ‘Taskmaster’s Assistant’. That’s what I do and it’s an honour. I like Taskmaster a lot. And, of course, I love The Taskmaster. He’s mountainous. If you feel in any way the same as me then you should enjoy this book.

There are tasks for you, your friends and your family. There are secret things and sneaky tricks. And there is one swear word. So it’s almost exactly like being on the show.

Good luck. Make good choices. Let’s do Him proud.
