Nice! I do love Taskmaster, such a funny show, and so different to everything else on TV. How many did you manage to get? Thanks for playing as well!

I got 10, but there were a few other names that I didn't get and still recognized like Hugh Dennis and Dave Gorman. I agree that Taskmaster is very different--there's really no equivalent to it in America! I really like that they put their videos on Youtube so that it's accessible to people here though--it's gotten a small but devoted fan following here in recent years :)

That's awesome, I guess you know Mr Gorman from Taskmaster? He's my favourite comedian for sure. You can watch his series "Modern Life Is Goodish" on YouTube. He's not quite as well known as a lot of other comedians on this quiz but I find him absolutely hilarious particularly in the series I mentioned. Would be interesting to know if it's still as funny from an American point of view. We do have subtly difference senses of humour each side of the pond, at least that's what I've been led to believe!
