Greg is set to host a brand new entertainment show, Taskmaster.
Taskmaster will see Greg take the title role of The Taskmaster; setting tasks to a group of well-known comedians and ultimately deciding who wins. Comedian Alex Horne, who devised the show, will assist Greg as his right-hand-man, coaxing the comedians to show how comic, creative and seriously competitive they are.
Six hour-long episodes have been commissioned, airing on UKTV’s Dave channel.
Greg returns to our screens tomorrow night for Series 2 of Cuckoo. Greg will be joined by new co-star, Taylor Lautner (of Twilight fame) who will be playing Cuckoo’s (previously played by Andy Samberg) long lost child.
Check out the trailer for Series 2 below and tune into BBC Three tomorrow night at 10pm.
I am so sad to learn of the passing of Rik. He was my comedy hero.
I could not believe that I got the opportunity to work with him and did not stop pinching myself throughout the filming. He was hilarious, warm and passionate on and off camera and being in his presence was always humbling.
I cannot imagine how devastated his family, who he spoke of with such love, will be feeling and my thoughts are with them at this terribly sad time. Rest in peace maestro.
