* In one episode of ''BabyLooneyTunes'', Melissa decides to become an insult comic after watching one on TV. True to the trope, her inspiration is incredibly unfunny.
* One episode of ''TheSimpsons'' had Springfield trying to win the right to host the next Olympic Games. They pretty much had it in the bag until Bart played Insult Comic to the members of the IOC, costing them the games and getting Bart in a lot of hot water.

Enter the InsultComic. When someone needs to be humiliated on a large scale, and it would require too much suspension of disbelief to get them to wind up on television or the front page, the InsultComic can take a large room of people and get them to laugh at the unfortunate target.

However, most writers are not stand-up comedians, and this trope is more about highlighting the insecurities of a character than providing legitimate jokes. As a result, the InsultComic will often have the inexplicable ability to make a crowd of people laugh, even when the 'jokes' are delivered in pure insult form and devoid of legitimate humor.

* The remake of ''TheNuttyProfessor'' has DaveChappelle's character, insult comedian Reggie Warrington, laying into his audience after an obligatory round of "Women be ''shoppin'!''" to fluff the crowd. The obese Professor Klump notices the comic's insults starting to make their way toward his table and tries to sneak out, but Reggie gets to him first and unleashes a string of humiliating fat jokes that completely ruins Klump's night. One of the first things he does upon becoming the svelte Buddy Love is going back to the club and [[TheHeckler showing up Reggie]] in [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a positively epic fashion]] before [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome kicking his ass and tossing him into a grand piano]].
