* In the ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' episode "Double, Double, Toil and Trouble", Elizabeth Montgomery cracked up after Dick York gave her a PieInTheFace. She dubbed over the scene in post-production, but if you look closely, you can still see her laugh.

* The question writers of the UK game show ''Series/TheChase'' frequently make the presenter Bradley Walsh try desperately not to burst into laughter with the immature multiple-choice questions they get him to read out. For instance, one such question was "In what sport did [[UnfortunateNames Fanny Chmelar]] compete for Germany?". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmwGFX5pgXw Witness the results here.]]

** In-universe; Varys—a former actor—prides himself on his acting ability but frequently fails to keep a straight face when Tyrion mocks Joffrey.

** In-universe; Varys—a former actor—prides himself on his acting ability but frequently struggles or fails to keep a straight face when Tyrion mocks Joffrey.Joffrey. In addition, during the Small Council scenes, Varys has a variety of amusing facial expressions as he reacts to what's going on. Especially when Littlefinger starts talking about his plan to wed Lysa Arryn, Varys does this excellent, bitchy "Oh my ''god''" eye roll. Thanks to Conleth Hill's terrific acting, Varys commenting on a scene purely with his facial expressions becomes a FunnyBackgroundEvent and a RunningGag.

* Marg Helgenberger's scene with William Petersen at the end of the ''Series/{{CSI}}'' episode 'Inside The Box' likely counts. Petersen did the pre-surgery scene with Grissom in his hospital gown without wearing anything underneath. Marg/Catherine is seen smirking at the end and you can probably guess why.

** Marine Corps Drill Instructors will actively TRY to get recruits to corpse, typically by shouting incredibly outlandish threats, to either a) help the recruit practice to hold their bearing, or b) give the DI an excuse to punish the recruit or platoon. They also aren't immune to corpsing themselves. That's why they wear such big hats.

* In the ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'' extras, Chevy Chase tells a story about Rodney Dangerfield getting increasingly distraught on set. When Chevy talked to him between takes, Rodney said he was afraid he was ruining the film because he couldn't make anyone laugh and crew were walking away during his scenes. Chevy had to explain that the ''whole damn crew'' was doing their best to ''not'' laugh and ruin every single take Rodney did.

* At one point early in ''Film/WhiteChristmas'', Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye dress in drag and perform an act lip-syncing to a record of the female leads singing. While Danny keeps a straight face all the way through, Bing repeatedly flubs his lip-sync and almost cracks up, especially when Danny hits him in the face with a feathered fan. It works in context, since the characters were ''supposed'' to be improvising an act to keep the police distracted while the singers escape out the back, and apparently it was filmed all in one take with only minimal rehearsal so it wouldn't look too polished.

* In ''Film/WaynesWorld'', a famously [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed]] scene between Wayne and Garth takes place as the two of them rest on Wayne's car, watching airplanes takeoff. Dana Carvey (Garth) can briefly be seen snickering to himself as he suddenly thinks up the line, "Did you ever think it was attractive when Bugs Bunny dressed up as a lady bunny?". Mike Myers (Wayne) manages to stammer out "No...!" while desperately trying to hold a straight face, before completely losing it and cackling madly. The reaction was so funny, the creators decided to leave it in the final cut.

** Conway was so good at this he could even do it by doing nothing at all. An anniversary special had Carol Burnett show us the unused footage from a skit where Tim is supposed to keep interrupting Harvey Korman's speech at a political dinner by loudly crunching potato chips. In the aired sketch he continues to do this forcing Harvey to repeatedly stop his speech to ever more angrily demand he stop, but in the outtake scene we see that Tim stops the first time Harvey asks him to and simply spends the rest of the scene paying rapt attention to Harvey's speech. Watching Harvey being forced to improvise diaslogue for getting way farther into the speech than he was ever supposed to, visibly waiting for Tim to crunch chips and trying not to crack up as he has to improvise, and occasionally giving Tim an "I'm going to kill you for this" death Glare while Tim just contentedly smiles at him is absolutely priceless.
** 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..."

** Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus was heavily prone to corpsing based on the out-takes, [[Creator/JerrySeinfeld Jerry]] almost as bad, with Creator/JasonAlexander occasionally breaking. Michael Richards on the other hand is practically immune and pretty much never breaks first, and is extremely focused on getting his lines out, ''while'' playing the hardest character on the show, he gets quite frustrated with the other members of the cast.

** Wolf Blitzer {{Lampshaded}} 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 ''Series/AllThat'', it was something of a tradition for Kenan and Kel to break out laughing at some point when they're playing off each other in the Good Burger sketches: they do it at least twice during the show itself, and when they came back for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5hO3RWXh38#t=7m58s Tenth Anniversary Special]] they did it again.

* On ''Series/That70sShow'', Kitty, Donna and Jackie go to a male strip club. Kitty enthusiastically starts dancing along with one of the strippers and slowly everyone loses it. It reaches its boiling point when the stripper himself can't keep dancing and collapses on the stage.
** On another episode Donna is interviewing her dad for career day. Bob takes off his circus ringmaster top hat (because his store is having a circus themed sale) and his perm has molded to the shape of the hat. Laura Prepon is facing away from the camera, but you can see her shoulders shake and see her look down to stifle a laugh, and Don Stark has to give her a moment.

* ''Series/ForeverKnight'' 'False Witness' had a scene at the end with Nick and Natalie watching ''Film/KingKong1933'' in Nick's loft. Nick startles Nat near the end of the scene by showing his fangs and she responds by throwing popcorn at him. This was actually a prank by Geraint Wyn Davies, rather than a planned part of the scene. The giveaway is that any other time Nick vamps, his eyes go golden, but the actor wasn't wearing the contacts that time, leaving his eyes their usual color. Also, the fangs are slightly crooked. The popcorn throw was probably, rather naturally, Catherine Disher's own reaction.

At the time, he was in a fierce rivalry with Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin, who was seated outside in his truck. Stone Cold was supposed to be reacting with bitter anger to the Rock's songs, but each time they cut to him in the truck he was struggling harder and harder not to laugh. By the time The Rock started dissing Austin himself, he had to roll up the truck's window so the camera wouldn't catch him cracking up.
