Dillon Francis Stars on Comedy Central’s “Taskmaster”



From music producer to DJ, let’s add comic genius to the mix. Dillon Francis is shaping up to be a man of all trades.  He’s got a reality TV parody called “DJ World.” Alter ego, DJ Hanzel, has an interview series on TBS Digital titled “One Deeper Talks.” More recently, he co-starred with James Van Der Beek in the hilarious satire of “What Would Diplo Do” on Viceland. Is there anything this guy isn’t in? Just how funny is Francis? Tune in to Comedy Central on April 27 at 11 p.m. as he becomes the newest recruit on ‘Taskmaster.’

Hosted by Reggie Watts, this is the “craziest game show ever”. It will feature Lisa Lampanelli, Kate Berlant, Ron Funches, Freddie Highmore and Francis himself. A series of outrageous tasks will be laid out. Whoever gets the most points wins a prize. Based on how well the contestants do, they’ll earn a certain amount of points. Ranging from microwaving a Mr. Potato Head to painting on horseback, it’ll be sure to fill your 30 minutes with laughter. Ridiculous but entertaining, this is the next show to watch.

This will be a game show like no other. Five people enter, five people leave. You’ll find that Dillon’s humor in this is the exact reason why Comedy Central reached out to him. Well known for his antics on social media for years, he’s back at it again. Dillon announced the show via Twitter, of course. Thoughts on the new show?
