Michael Palin says laughter can be more powerful than violence.

Speaking ahead of the 40th anniversary of “Monty Python’s Life of Brian”, the actor says he realised while playing Pontius Pilate, when local extras were told to laugh at him for a scene.

The sight of three hundred people jeering at him made him think it would be a good way to get rid of dictators.
