“When Michael Palin as Pontius Pilate addressed the soldiers daring them to laugh, he was truly daring them. The soldier extras were ordered by the Pythons to stand there and not laugh but not told what Palin was going to do. Palin, in fact, can be seen to barely stifle his own laughter when saying “Biggus Dickus” in front of the soldier asked if he finds the name “risible”.”
