Interview: Rhod Gilbert On His Taskmaster Debut

Why did you sign up to take part in Taskmaster?

I don’t know, I honestly don’t. I hadn’t really watched the show. I wish I had, if I’m honest. It would definitely have helped. James Acaster is a big fan of the show and he’s seen the house and knew where things were kept. He called on that knowledge in the show. If I’d known what I was letting myself in for I probably wouldn’t have done it. Because I think I’ve come across pretty badly.
