I can't imagine her standup's for me, but Urzila Carlson is doing a UK tour next year too.

Two Hearts (the duo Laura Daniel is in) are also at the Fringe this year

I'm going to one of the recordings on Thursday. Haven't watched much of the NZ series but might have judged the episode I watched of the first series too harshly

They're both doing warm up gigs at the Pleasance in London in July near(ish) to the end of the month: https://www.pleasance.co.uk/via/search/london/type/comedy/type/cabaret%20and%20variety

I was looking to see if Paul Williams was doing anything in London and thanks you, I am now going to see him. Yiss.

I'm going too and can't believe it's only a fiver and that I get to see Olga Koch too, who's always been fantastic in the past.

She's performing with her fiancé, so I'm afraid you will have to murder him if there's to be any chance of romance.

It was someone on here who recommended it, but Paul Williams' album "Surf Music" is pretty damn good too. In fact, it's probably earlier in this thread.

Fingers crossed for Pax Assadi being in this one, he's got the right energy to be a great contestant.

It's great.  It was James Acaster's pre-show music on his 'Cold Lasagna' tour.

I think I bought it after Acaster played it, but it took me quite a few episodes of TM NZ before it dawned that it was the same Paul Williams.

The video for 'Surf Music' also features Brynley Stent from season 1 (and Rose Matafeo):

On the Brynley and Rose front, the improv group Snort are part of the same night as Laura Daniel's Pleasance gig, and the blurb claims "SNORT sees New Zealand's best comedians (including Rose Matafeo, Laura Daniel, Joseph Moore, Eli Matthewson, Nic Sampson, James Roque, Paul Williams, Brynley Stent, Rhiannon McCall and more) build an intricate hour of far-fetched, high-stakes comedy, entirely made up on the spot, featuring a brand new guest every night", I'm presuming not all of those will be present that night, but I'm hoping Paul Williams and Brynley Stent will be.

And when it comes to Paul's music, I'm a big fan of all of it, and would recommend buying Jungle River Adventure and Songs About Girls as well as Surf Music, I love all three almost equally, and I'm extremely fond of Absent Treatment from the former.

Paul Ego hasn't been good anywhere I've seen him, but the rest of the castlook okay.

Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on December 02, 2020, 08:21:03 PMAs there's a lot of interest in the NZ show, and some vague interest in other countries take on the series, I thought I'd start a thread. You can get the international episodes from this reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/panelshow/comments/c7yns3/taskmaster_international_editions_collection/ while episodes of the New Zealand show are here: https://www.reddit.com/r/panelshows/

The New Zealand one definitely seems to be the best non-English version, and I'd say it's even a bit better than this current UK one (though I am very, very fond of that too), and as for the other series I'm fond of the Norwegian one, even if the subtitles are a bit naff, and the Swedish one wasn't too bad, though I've only watched a few episodes so far.

Sorry to be so late to this thread, but there can't be many series of Taskmaster in New Zealand since there's only about thirty people even living there

wish they would show the nz version in this country, i always recomend it to people and i can see it in their eyes that they aren't going to bother despte their nods. hoping its easy to torrent.

The first two seasons were on Youtube so it was easy enough to watch. I do know what you mean though, I'd also recommended it to people who probably just forgot about it seconds later. I did successfully convince my parents to watch it though.
