'Tasks are filmed with each contestant separately in a house in Chiswick, London. However, Alex Horne's initial plan was to carry out the tasks in the comedians' houses, saying in an interview: "I didn't realise how impractical that would be both in terms of cost – and their lives."
Filming tasks takes roughly one day per contestant per episode, filming around eight tasks a day, with the days of filming spread out across several months. Before the studio filming, at Pinewood Studios, contestants are forbidden to discuss their tasks and are not shown any footage from the tasks, so that studio reactions are genuine.'
I see that Channel 4 are now showing Taskmaster New Zealand.
If you haven't watched any of it, I recommend that you do. Once you get past the fact that it not Alex and Greg, you'll enjoy it.
Some episodes are on YouTube, all 4 series are on DailyMotion.
Taskmaster Australia (only one series so far) is also available - filmed in the same location as new Zealand.
