* Occurs InUniverse in ''[[Creator/LennyHenry Lenny Henry in Pieces]]''. Several sketches involve Lenny's character giggling uncontrollably after his partner rips a fart while the two are trying to stay hidden in a dangerous situation, such as when ambushing a mob boss, escaping a Nazi camp, or playing dead on a battlefield.

* ''Literature/WingsOfFire'': In the first book, as the dragonets reenact the start of the [=SandWing=] Secession War, Sunny plays the role of Queen Oasis, whose death started the twenty-year war. She's supposed to just lie there, but the antics of her friends (especially seeing Starflight dully act like [[BrainlessBeauty Blaze]]) makes her start laughing.

** Kyle gets another turn while watching ''Film/MisterLonely''. After bringing up a subplot featuring Creator/WernerHerzog leading a convent full of nuns in an unspecified country, he "discusses" its connection to the main plot (which is about celebrity impersonators) by staring at the camera for a period while smiling awkwardly. His friend and title card artist Ven Gethenian leans in, comments "[[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail A moose once bit my sister,]]" and Kyle's fixed expression dissolves into giggling.

* Happened several times on ''Series/InLivingColor'', but possibly the most memorable time was during the two-parter ''Men On Television'' skit when Blaine, played by Damon Wayans was hit by a falling piece of debris and squeaks out a yell right before falling to the floor. David Alan Grier's, who plays Antoine, laughter was ''very'' apparent. ("Blaine? Bla-a-a-aine? Call a doctor! I think he needs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation!")
* In the ''Series/OnceUponATime'' episode ''Red Handed,'' Granny snarks to Ruby that she dresses like a crossdresser. Ruby snarks back Granny dresses like [[Film/{{Psycho}} Norman Bates when he dresses like Norman Bates' mother.]] August is trying not to laugh, and the writers chose to ThrowItIn.

* Ceremonial guards such as the Queen's Guard at Buckingham Palace are [[DefiedTrope trained and drilled rigorously]] to maintain [[TheStoic an absolutely stoic demeanor]] whatever is happening around them. That said, they're only human so it ''is'' sometimes just possible to get one of them to break up if you really make an effort, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSoJqdPi4Iw as this guy discovered]].

* An in-universe example in ''Series/MurphyBrown'' Murphy tells some jokes about George Bush being stung by a bee during a commercial break. When they come back Jim Dial can't stop laughing. He gets a lot of hate mail and is worried about going back on in case he does it again. The FYI news team tries to reaasure him. When he does eventually go back _everyone else_ breaks down laughing as he does his report completely professionally.
