* WebVideo/TheTourettesGuy is a shining example of this. Of course, the now-defunct website claimed that, while the Tourette's Guy does have Tourette's Syndrome, his behaviour is influenced far more by his [[TheAlcoholic heavy drinking]] than it.

* Machinima: In ''TheLeetWorld'', Ahmad's stint on HAX leaves him with brain damage, which manifests as some sort of Tourette Syndrome-CloudCuckooLander hybrid, with the Terrorist spouting random verbal outbursts such as "Hamwallets!" "Crotchbutter!" and "[[Main/LampshadeHanging Random Outburst!]]"

* In ''[[DeuceBigalow Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo]]'', Deuce is ordered to take a woman with Tourette's Syndrome on a date at one point. He takes her to a baseball game, whereupon everything she shouts seems appropriate (as everyone else in the stands is cursing, too). Incidentally, she was played by a pre-fame Creator/AmyPoehler.

* Doc the bartender in ''BoondockSaints'' is affectionately referred to as "Fuckass" by his regular patrons, the reason being his exclamations of "Fuck! Ass!" that occur fairly frequently. While nobody ever mentions the words Tourette's Syndrome, the two heroes do end up trying to explain the behavior to a little girl who overhears some of the foul language in a Catholic hospital. There is some attempt at realism here, with [[Series/FraggleRock Doc]] usually only shouting his signature curse after a difficult bout of stuttering... which he suffers once or twice a sentence. He also has the motor "tics" that an actual Tourette's sufferer might have, acting very much like someone who's never been treated for the illness. As an "Old Irish Publican" hard ass, he's probably not seen the inside of a doctor's office since his last barfight... it fits.
* ''NotAnotherTeenMovie'' has a cheerleader with Tourette's Syndrome. She becomes very popular and even gets a boyfriend.
* In ''TheInventionOfLying'', almost everyone in the society has a form of Tourette's where they always speak with complete, unfiltered honesty. Early in the film, the man (played by Creator/RickyGervais) is waiting for a woman. She says, in effect "I'm just going out with you because I'm bored and my mom keeps bugging me about grandchildren. I'm way out of your league. I'll be down in 15 minutes after I finish masturbating."
* In ''TheGreenMile'', one character lapses into swearing fits in the last stages of a brain tumor. In the book, one of the other characters comments that it sounds like Tourette's Syndrome.

* In ''WhatAboutBob'', the title character talks about his fear of the disorder right before a profane outburst. He then explains, "If I can fake it, I don't have it."

* In ''TheBigWhite'', Molly Hunter's character claims to have Tourette's, and swears like a sailor. However, one of her kidnappers notices that she swears less when she's shocked, and while he's making her breakfast (it's that kind of movie) theorizes that she just heard about the condition, and decided to use it as an excuse for some cathartic vocabulary.

* On the 7th season of the UK version of ''BigBrother'', the producers cast a guy who had Tourette's Syndrome; naturally, his tic was that he muttered "wanker". He also flicked his neck, but not many people noticed that.

* A recurring character on ''Series/SnuffBox'' walks around, occasionally saying "Fuck!" with a characteristic cane-wave. He eventually meets a group of similiar individuals, and a [[PotterPuppetPals Mysterious Ticking Noise]]-esque song starts.

* SpiderRobinson's short story "Involuntary Man's Laughter" in the Literature/CallahansCrosstimeSaloon collection ''Callahan's Secret'' centers around a young man with a severe case of Tourette's. Averts the usual treatment in that his symptoms are primarily physical, and include no dirty words; his vocal tics are described as "grunting and barking". Underlined, however, by the fact that Robinson's portrait of Tourette's is, even more than most in entertainment media, exaggerated well past the point of caricature: his character's syndrome is so extreme ("He had a twitch that might have been produced by the greatest comedian in the world going flat-out for a laugh, and his grunts sounded ''precisely'' like a gorilla making love") that he cannot be in a room with another person without that other person bursting into literally uncontrollable laughter.
