Transcript of Swords and Coconuts

Swords and Coconuts The Works Of Terry Gilliam Gilliam was deeply influenced when he moved to New York as a teen. There, he immediately got a job working for Help magazine. This is what mainly drove him to become interested in animations he created along with John Cleese. Along with Cleese, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin, Gilliam founded the Monty Python British comedy troupe. The Monty Python troupe exceeded expectations in their roles of film shorts or animations. This lead Gilliam to experiment with directing. Thus, Gilliam put his work into co-directing a comedy film that was based off of the Pythons. As a result, Monty Python and The Holy Grail was released in 1975 as a British slapstick comedy film. Even today, it is argued to be one of , if not tHE best, British comedy film of all time. The main genre that he has touched would be the slapstick comedy type. It is often noted for the witty nonsense that usually appears in the majority of the films. MONTY PYTHON. YEAH. That's them. xD The several Python films plus the BBS show they were based off of (Monty Python's Flying Curcus) are constantly still watched today for those who always love a good laugh at the expense of something silly and pointless. Hence the coconuts and random escapades these characters chase. Modern day snapshot of Terry This was him back in the day...
