How we made Monty Python's The Meaning of Life

30 September 2013 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Michael Palin and Terry Jones recall the hilarity on the set of their 1983 classic – and reveal what Mr Creosote's vomit was made of

Michael Palin, actor

Having done The Holy Grail and Life of Brian, we found ourselves with a much bigger budget for The Meaning of Life. This meant we could spend an entire week on things like the sketch with Mr Creosote [the monstrously fat diner]. The sheer amount of minestrone used in the vomiting sequence was only possible because we were with Universal. That part was filmed at Seymour leisure centre in Paddington. On the morning after the final scene, in which Mr Creosote explodes and thousands of gallons of vomit get hurled against the walls, the room was all cleaned up immaculately – and, within 12 hours, two people were married in there. I wonder if they ever knew what had happened hours before.

The sketches drew on what we were feeling at the time. »
