* InUniverse in the first ''Film/PoliceAcademy''. After the [[AssShove horse incident]] with Harris what Mahoney witnessed, he asks Mahoney in the next scene if he had mentioned it to anyone. Mahoney denies it, but everyone else starts snickering as soon as Harris walks past them.

* In ''Film/DraculaDeadAndLovingIt'' during the scene where Harker and Helsing stake Lucy. Steven Weber, who played Harker, was told that he was going to be [[BloodyHilarious sprayed with fake blood]], but ''not'' [[HighPressureBlood how much]]. So when he starts driving the stake in and is hit with it, he's clearly struggling not to laugh when Helsing tells him to hit her one more time to be sure only to refute "She's dead enough!".

* ''WebVideo/OutsideXbox'' has two variations of this. Sometimes, they'll have someone in the scene crack up; about two-thirds of the time, it'll end up in the end-of-year bloopers rather than the episode. Other times, someone just out of the camera's field of view will go into hysterics as a result of a line. For example, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMuwUnvuCrA 5 Game Movies We Love]] has Jane delivering a speech about how ''Film/SilentHill'' let [[ChronicallyKilledActor Sean Bean]] go free, then wonder out loud what her point was, again...and Andy, just offscreen, audibly dies laughing.

Ellen Rose tends to be particularly bad about it, spending multiple "Show of the Weekend" videos laughing at nearly everything Luke does - although since "Show of the Weekend" is supposed to feel laid-back and friendly, it doesn't get cut and generally makes the videos funnier.

* The legendary ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'' [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ftU5GfORvH8 BlooperReel]] has several instances of the actors cracking up mid-line, such as Panthro's actor breaking down during a long string of TechnoBabble to remark "What the fuck am I even saying?!"

** Conway kept it up on the short-lived WB improv/sitcom "On the Spot," regularly doing ad-libs that had the other actors cracking up constantly. It was even lampshaded with an actor asked what his character was doing and replying "it was terrible, he didn't do one line from the script..."

** Wolf Blitzer {{lampshade|Hanging}}d this one time while sitting in for Anderson. The Ridiculist for that episode referenced a friendly rivalry between the two anchors. Wolf said that one skill he had and Anderson lacked was an ability to say anything with a straight face. He then showed a {{Montage}} of Anderson corpsing. Then to illustrate his point, he rattled off a sentence consisting almost entirely of InherentlyFunnyWords, including the afore-mentioned Pussy Willows, as well as Lake Titicaca, all with a completely straight face.

** In the episode 'Tin Man', towards the end of the episode as the two Colonels are talking, you can see Teal'c on the left side of the screen. As [[spoiler: real]] O'Neil is telling [[spoiler: robot]] O'Neil to get the damage to the side of his face looked at, as he vaguely indicates, you can see the corner of Teal'c's mouth rise up in a unmistakable attempt to hold [[NotSoStoic back a grin.]]

* Because part of the character of Wrestling/TheNewDay is to have the three of them be as ridiculous and fun-loving as they can be, they seem to enjoy goading more serious characters into breaking character as part of their promos. This extends to interviews too, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHucUysl0v0 this one]] where they attempt to disrupt the WebVideo/{{WhatCulture Wrestling}} interviewer Adam Pacitti as much as possible. It does backfire, as only [[spoiler: Wrestling/KofiKingston]] is able to survive the entire video without completely breaking down laughing.

** As seen in the first clip, the titular characters are even kind enough to lampshade it beforehand.

* A famous ColdOpen on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' portrays Osama Bin Laden trying to record an anti-American propaganda video, but breaking up into laughter when he mispronounces a word. He's unable to regain his composure and eventually degenerates into outright clowning. [[spoiler: Then Stewie shows up and kicks his ass.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Maki Horikita, playing as a psychic detective, was caught smirking when her assistant revealed Hamada's "true" identity as [[RunningGag a gorilla]].
** In a deleted scene, Jimmy Onishi plays a character that has a difficult time pronouncing Massachusetts. His costar couldn't handle it and starts laughing uncontrollably every time someone says Massaschusetts. Keep in mind nobody but the main five stars were supposed to laugh.

* In ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' after Lando flirts shamelessly with Leia and an annoyed Han says "All right you old smoothie" you can see Creator/CarrieFisher break character and grinning. According to Fisher herself in an audio commentary, this was aggravated by the previous night, when Eric Idle (at that point filming ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'') had held a party, with a drink he called "Tunisian Tabletop Cleaner." The resulting buzz apparently lasted well into the following day's filming, giving everyone on set a tendency to sport a big grin.

** In ''Film/RogueOne'', Alan Tudyk improvised K2-SO slapping Cassian in the face - and as a result, while Cassian appears to be in pain, the FacePalm is Diego Luna hiding his laughter. (director Gareth Edwards also said Tudyk making him laugh was not easy for him, as he had to bite his lip hard to prevent the handheld camera from shaking).
** ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' has a ''possible'' example. There's a persistent rumor that Creator/EwanMcGregor can be heard/seen cracking up a bit during the scene where he tells Padme about Anakin killing the Jedi younglings. It's a bit hard to tell; he ''does'' make a sort of choking noise and cover his mouth when he says the "killing younglings" line, but given the context it seems likely it was intended as him trying to keep his composure while discussing a disturbing event. Unfortunately, some think [[{{Narm}} it ends up looking more like he's trying to hold back a staggeringly inappropriate laugh]].

* In ''Film/TheWolfOfWallStreet'', as Donnie has to deliver a briefcase to Brad (and the latter is arrested), Jonah Hill is clearly pushing Jon Bernthal to the extreme, and Bernthal can't hold his laughter as he hears "Oh my God, the emperor of Fucksville came down from Fucksville to give me a pass!"

* GakiNoTsukaiYaArahende has a yearly "No Laughing" special that thrives in this trope. The premise is that a group of actors/comedians are placed in a situation (as inmates, spies in training, news reporters, etc.) for 24 hours and are pelted by traps, jokes and sketches to get them to "Corpse", with painful results to the ones that can't keep it together.
** Also, in one of said specials, several actors were playing dead in a morgue. The investigator examining the bodies went through lengthy measures to prove the bodies were ,indeed ,dead, causing the actors to flinch or giggle.
