** Really, if the whole wooing scene doesn't get the audience laughing ''at least'' once, you're doing it wrong.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: the scene between the princess and her maid, where the princess tried to learn English words, only to snicker when she discovers the words for "foot" and "gown" sound a lot like the French words for "fuck" and "cunt." Not particularly relevant to the plot of the play, and probably only included so that a) Shakespeare could poke fun at the French language and b) Catherine's identity and role would be established rather than just showing up at the ''very'' end of the play for Henry to woo.

It stands out even more [[RealityHasNoSubtitles if the scene goes untranslated]], meaning non-French speaking English-speaking audience members will be completely at a loss what is going on.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: When Henry begins to try to woo Catherine, she replies with "your Grace shall mock at me; I cannot speak your England." Henry's reaction - ''"Oh,"'' - is often played for laughs in various productions, as he's clearly thinking 'Oh ''CRAP.' ''

** The Welsh soldier, Fluellen, is a bit like this in some circles -- it helps that he's seriously entertaining and deeply earnest about what he does.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: What ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' is to phrases that have become standards, this play is to war movie tropes. It can seem like all Shakespeare has done is string scenes from WWII movies together.
