Dillon Francis lands another TV gig on Comedy Central’s ‘Taskmaster’

With his reality TV parody “DJ World,” an interview series on TBS Digital titled “One Deeper Talks” as DJ Hanzel, and, more recently, co-starring in “What Would Diplo Do” on Viceland with James Van Der Beek, one thing is certain: the world knows how funny Dillon Francis can be. So it only made sense for Comedy Central to recruit him for their new “Taskmaster,” which premiers on at 11 p.m. April 27.

The “craziest game show ever” will be hosted by Reggie Watts, featuring Lisa Lampanelli, Kate Berlant, Ron Funches, Freddie Highmore and Francis himself. It will be a half hour of Watts and co-host laying out tasks, and whichever participant is awarded the most points, wins a prize. The points will be allotted based on how the tasks were performed. Check out the official trailer for “Taskmaster” via Francis’ tweet on the announcement below.
