Plot Synopsis

Hosted and executive produced by Reggie Watts and Alex Horne, TASKMASTER!, a half-hour gameshow based on the UK series of the same name, requires individuals to use ingenuity and creativity to complete unusual challenges. For each challenge, Watts and Horne, award points based on what they did and how they did it. At the end of each episode, the contender that has accrued the most points will win a prized possession that either they or their competitors have offered up. At the end of the season, the player with the most points overall will win a trophy and become the ultimate champion of Taskmaster. Five unwitting contestants which include Freddie Highmore, Kate Berlant, Dillon Francis, Lisa Lampanelli, and Ron Funches as they compete independently against each other in a series of stupefying tasks.
On Friday, May 18, 2018 from 11pm-Midnight ET/PT, Comedy Central premiered the season finale of TASKMASTER, debuting back-to-back new episodes:

"Hostage" (11pm): The contestants must figure out what their first task is from a series of clues, record the most incredible footage they can and stack the lowest number of donuts on a stick.

"101 Ducks" (11:30pm): Reggie Watts crowns a winner after making the contestants knock down a bunch of rubber ducks, do something surprising with a potato and inflate a balloon.
