What’s a fun fact about her? Dara Ó Briain previously held the Guinness World Record (shared with Jack Whitehall and Jon Richardson) for the world’s highest stand-up comedy performance, having performed on an airplane in 2011. The record is now held by Lekhmani Trital and Umesh Kumar Gautam who performed at Mount Kala Patthar in Napal in 2021.

What’s a fun fact about her? Her favorite film is Thelma and Louise. She’s only ever owned diesel cars, too, but that seemed to stretch the definition of “fun” a bit.

Who Will Win Taskmaster Series 14?

I will make the early prediction that Munya Chawawa will win Taskmaster Series 14. You can quote me on that in a few months.

When will Taskmaster series 14 air?

At the moment we don’t have a specific date for Taskmaster Series 14. However, previous seasons on both Dave and Channel 4 have aired around September/October so it seems a reasonable expectation that the same will hold true for Series 14 again.
