In this Broadcast Award-winning, BAFTA and Emmy Award-nominated entertainment show, Taskmaster tyrant Greg Davies (Man Down, Cuckoo), with the help of his loyal assistant Alex Horne (The Horne Section and the show’s creator), sets out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper-competitive comedians.

Comedians that have risked life, limb, and dignity in the hope of making the Taskmaster proud so far include: Frank Skinner (The Frank Skinner Show), Mel Giedroyc (The Great British Bake Off), Romesh Ranganathan (Asian Provocateur), Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones’ Diary), Rose Matafeo (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2018), and Russell Howard (The Russell Howard Hour). Unaware of what awaits them in each wax-sealed envelope, only one competitor can become the victorious owner of His Royal Task-ness’ golden head and be crowned the next Taskmaster Champion.

  • In defense of Keith if you throw a rock into a river most people would say it disappeared even thought it didn’t dissolve.

  • There's a reason why Tim is still a task consultant on the show.

  • can't watch this. so much waste ofwater!

  • Take the ice block and chuck it at the judge, boom it disappeared.

  • To be fair, if something being in a river made it disappear then there would be no river boats left

  • I would have probably lost as my solution would have been "hit it with a rock." Legit I thought "well are there any bricks around? Just pick up one of those bad boys and go to town." Only to see somebody tried similar.

    • River guy should have won. The time definitely should've stopped when the timer couldn't see it, not when it was thrown in the river.

  • I'm surprised someone didn't just hide it!

  • Am I the only one that thought: "Why not just bury the thing in the yard?"

  • "I am a child in charge of this show". That is the best thing I have heard in a while.

  • put it in a box and let them debate schrodinger

  • There's a reason why Tim is still a task consultant on the show.

  • Couldn't you just put a drape or blanket over the ice to make it "disappear"?

  • If you want the "block" of ice to disappear, couldn't you just smash it in to a couple pieces and then it would technically mean that there is no more block of ice... leading it to technically disappear.

  • Cut the ice block in half, you'll get two new ice blocks, so the original one disappeared.

    • when the block of ice "isnt disappered" when its in the river and cant be seen, then the melted ice blocks also didnt disaprer, because sure its water now but its still there! wit

  • I think I would have buried it

  • Watching this was a strange experience. Its obvious every one of them was doing things in extremely inefficient ways so as to make entertaining tv, because otherwise they would all need to be idiots. The quickest way to melt ice is to increase its surface area by reducing it to smaller pieces so as to improve heat transfer. The fastest way to do this is to smash it into tiny little pieces while running hot water over it. Small pieces have more surface area and hot water allows for more surface contact and with more capacity for heat transfer than hot air or air alone. A block that size could easily be melted in less than 5 minutes with a good sized hammer and a garden hose.

  • they just want it gone? *looks for a shovel an a spot in the yard to bury it*

  • I'll just say this before I finish watching the video: I'd put the ice block in the bathtub and fill it with water. I believe you wouldn't be able to see it anymore. Edit: Now that I've seen the video I realize that the iceblock would float on the water and you'd still be able to see it. I wouldn't change my plan, though. I'd just put something heavy on top of the iceblock in the bathtub (like a hammer or something like that) to force it to the bottom of the bathtub and THEN fill it with water.

  • I was waiting for one of them to smash it and say "alright the CUBE of ice is gone"

  • River guy should have won. The time definitely should've stopped when the timer couldn't see it, not when it was thrown in the river.

  • everything!

  • Just found this and it’s wonderful

  • *brings out a sheet and places it on the ice* "Hey Alex, could you close your eyes until I ask you to open them again?" "kind of weird but okay" hide the ice, feign holding the sheet over the ice and ask him to open his eyes. dramatically lift the sheet "Ta-da"

  • You can't just very specifically omit the world "melt" and then have a problem with someone not melting it!

    • Beat it with a technicality. Hit it with a hammer. Done. It is no longer a Block of ice, as it is no longer 6 sided.

  • Man the host seem like total assholes

  • just sledge hammer it

  • If I were Tim I would be fuming. And then proceed to make Greg disappear by throwing him to a river

  • I feel smarter than these people... they collectively jump at the most obvious answer rather than the most logical.

  • Using salt would have been good

  • when the block of ice "isnt disappered" when its in the river and cant be seen, then the melted ice blocks also didnt disaprer, because sure its water now but its still there! with that logic "makeing something disapper is nearly impossible because the atoms of it the matter will always be somewhere, or it will transform into energy, but thats also still there. only if it goes into a black hole it might disaper, but even then we dont know what happens inside a black hole or how it functions or what it is, so it might still be there.

    • @nieooj gotoy yeah thats true but i had nor problem with the "how to melt strategies". i think its wrong to disqualify the guy with the "throw it in the river" strategy because "you can still see it so its not disapered" argument. because after all the ice is melted its still there and you can still see it, its just water now. but the challange doesnt say make this ice block not being ice anymore.

    • What, just grab the hammer, start smashing, pulverize it into tiny pieces, pour hot water on it all if necessary. The ice will melt way faster if it's all separated.

  • Anyone think of a faster way to make the ice block disappear? Could’a easily chucked it into the bushes Hopefully down a cliff

  • I don't know, if the objective is to make it disappear, and the judge could no longer see it, I feel the item has disappeared.

  • That dude was legit pissed off about the beans

  • place.

  • I was waiting for someone to throw it over the fence

  • Africa wants to know your location

  • Me who would just slide it across the floor with friction.

  • You need to fight water with water like they say

    • yeah it wasn't melt this block of ice until its gone, it was make it disappear.

  • Beat it with a technicality. Hit it with a hammer. Done. It is no longer a Block of ice, as it is no longer 6 sided.

  • Disappear: To cease to be visible. Just put a cover on it.

  • Should have just buried it, done!

  • I would smash it. Let the sun do the work.

  • dis·ap·pear /ˌdisəˈpir/ Definition: Cease to be visible. The task was to make it disappear. They didn't specify it had to change states. The guy who tossed it in the river made it disappear; the second it went under and wasn't visible it technically disappeared. Fuck the judges.

  • ok if the goal is to make the *block* of ice dissapear, could you not just knock it over and let it shatter?: there would be no block of ice, only chunks of ice.

  • What, just grab the hammer, start smashing, pulverize it into tiny pieces, pour hot water on it all if necessary. The ice will melt way faster if it's all separated.

  • Make it disappear Me: cover it with a blanket!

  • From the definition of disappear, I think merely covering it up would have sufficed

  • just throw it in hot water douse it in salt and demolish it with a hammer all at once or any combination of these

  • Just smash it. Its no longer a block of ice, hence you made the block of ice dissapear. If its allowed to "destroy" it to make it dissapear as they do by melding it into water, smashing it up does the same.

  • Lmao the difference between dumping it in a river and covering it in dirt and leaves is noice

  • So basically they are just wasting hot water

  • yeah it wasn't melt this block of ice until its gone, it was make it disappear.

  • Should’ve just buried it

  • Gasoline and match

  • The wholesale tachometer numerically squeeze because wealth semiannually lick from a filthy hamster. gleaming, lethal cake

  • Before the end of the video I thought to myself "Just throw it in a river, then it will disappear", only to find out someone else thought about it and got disqualified.

  • Ahhh this episode is were I would be reading my contract if I had not already memorized it as to give him a challenge just to watch him do it and no one else has to only for your amusement seem wrong to me there already degrading them selfs and than you go and be an ass...

  • a combination of salt and heat along with smashing the thing might have worked best I think. this is an interesting task.

  • everyone: melt the ice with shower water the last guy: dispose of the body in a body of water

    • By the definition given "so you cant see it any more" the solution was to cover it with your clothes.

  • Are they not allowed to use thermite powder? Thermite can melt through a car in minutes.

  • They should have filled the bath tub put the block in and due to light refraction you could no longer see the ice!

  • Alex is a gem.

  • I would've put a cloth over a table and then made alex sit down on a chair far away. I would've put the ice on the ground and told alex that I will magically make the ice "disappear". Then I would've placed a sheet in front of the ice (blocking alex's vision) and slid the block under the table with the cloth. I would then remove the sheet and announce with a triumph "Voilà! It is gone". Easy 5 points.

  • River guy should have won. If they are going to be that literal about it “disappearing,” everyone else should have slurped up the left over water cause I still saw it.

    • Water isn't ice. They were tasked to make the block of water disappear.

    • If had put the ice block in a sack, full of enough weights to make it sink, then tossed it in the river, I'd agree. Come to think of it, if he'd put the ice block in a sack right there in the yard, and declared job done, I'd also agree.

  • caster oil

  • Am i the only one who would've played by rule of logic? break the singular block of ice in half and that singular block of ice is now gone?

  • I have never seen this show before but I feel like throwing it into a garbage can with a lid must be too simple of an answer.

  • I would've just thrown a blanket over it!

  • Why not cover it? They said „you can’t see it anymore”

  • dig a hole, throw it in, cover it up, done.

  • Since the challenge was make the ice block disappear couldn't they just cover it with a blanket so you cant see it? he states disappeared is that it cant be seen

  • There was a shovel. Why did nobody bury it?

  • the best way is to smash the block into as many pieces as possible and each piece will gain energy as time goes on

  • By the definition given "so you cant see it any more" the solution was to cover it with your clothes.

  • i think tim key should’ve got this one. it was disappeared was it not?

  • surface area man, break it down a bunch and itll melt faster independently

  • Just put a tarp over it.

  • Love how Romesh's idea of handling things is bonk to the ground (even for the watermelon challenge)

  • Me when i do a whole ass assignment that is optional: 7:05 My friend: 7:07

  • Just for the record, when a magician disappears, he doesn't actually sublimate into a wisp of smoke. Vision is the criteria for (dis)appearance. The river should have gotten first place.

    • Sure, but he doesn't slowly walk away, saying "I'm disappearrrinnnnnggg.....".

  • Two questions. Why is taskmaster a uk show not available in the UK and what’s the point in blocking it when most people have a VPN now.

  • If it Disappeared, and then Appeared to someone else, It means it Disappeared. Even if it later re-appeared.

  • Wow! AGW is real and celebrities are wasting energy, and water, melting ice for entertainment. If you want to know if something is a lie, watch the behavior.

  • The demonic cause connolly fancy because respect acly disarm for a limping soldier. unequaled, decisive offer

  • THE SALT WAS RIGHT THERE IN THE KITCHEN!

  • what if you broke it up and just flushed the pieces down the toilet without melting them?

  • To be honest none of them made it disappear...it just changed the state of matter

  • I can't believe people think this sht is funny

  • How i love her cute little (or would that be li-il) British accent.

  • Push it down, then slide it away?

  • As soon as I saw that they had a shovel my first idea was to bury it. Out of sight, out of mind

  • *Throws blanket over ice* And now it's gone!

  • No one thought of digging a hole, placing the ice in the hole, and filling the hole with dirt?

  • What ice block?

  • Dig a hole, put it in, cover it. 5 minutes

    • My first thoughts exactly. Saw the shovel they were using and solidified my idea.

  • "Once it's in the river it's gone, mate!" ...well... obviously, many people think that way, because look at Thames. But also, it obviously doesn't work that way, because look at Thames.

    • Imagine someone wants to take a dive in the river, so they throw themselves off a bridge and hit their head on the ice, that’s it mate, death by random ice.

  • 5 seconds in and all I can think is to put it into water. Hot water first to make it more transparent but after that just any water would do

  • There's a reason why Tim is still a task consultant on the show.

  • "I imagine this is what it's like on the set of Frozen" Jesus Christ

  • Shit I just would’ve sculpted it into something or chunks, no more “block or ice”. Hello Ice gravel
