->''"I do realise that when I laugh, it sounds like a [[BestialityIsDepraved seal]] [[BlackComedyRape is being molested]]."''
-->-- '''Creator/JimmyCarr''', ''The Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2009''

Laughter, of course, is one of the best known and most treasured ways that human beings express happiness. In addition to laughing when they find something funny, people laugh when they find something joyous, or heartwarming, or even stimulating. In general, a person enjoys hearing another person laugh. Unless, of course, that other person has a laugh that, rather than sounding joyous, sounds painful or cringe-inducingly awful.

The AnnoyingLaugh usually comes in several specific flavors (the Asthma Attack bellow, the high [[TheHyena Hyena-like cackle]], the Snort-Snort-Snort, the Machine Gun Chuckle, and the Donkey-like Bray being the most common). In some cases, the AnnoyingLaugh is used in place of actually fleshing out a character, since the type of annoying laugh can lead the audience to assuming the character basically is just as annoying as his or her laugh happens to be. In some cases, a character will have an AnnoyingLaugh because the script calls for it, but sometimes its because the actor playing the role laughs like that for real.

The supertrope of the NoblewomansLaugh. Almost always PlayedForLaughs. Compare UnEvilLaugh. Sometimes part of an OverlyLongGag. The annoying laugh is very common in animation and sitcoms. Subtrope of SignatureLaugh.

* Naga the Serpent from ''{{Slayers}}'', whose epic NoblewomansLaugh can be classified as a deadly weapon in 37 states. It also sends old women scrambling to the nearest shrine, begging whichever deity that happens to be nearby to "please make it stop".
** Her voice actress also did a bit more laughing as Black Rose Kodachi in Manga/RanmaOneHalf.
* Esmeraude from ''Anime/SailorMoon''.
** Also Zoycite from the Creator/DiC English dub. Voiced by the same actress.
** Taken, as one would expect, to the N'th degree in ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged''.

* ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'': Jinnai could be the anime mascot for this trope.
* In ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', the other characters find Kululu's "Ku-ku-ku!" laugh annoying. Every time he laughs, the others know he's causing mischief.
* The Italian dub of ''Manga/OnePiece'' is basically one big LampshadeHanging of how the unusual different kinds of laughter (case in point: Hogback), while somewhat acceptable in a manga, actually end up working ''awfully'' when get animated. On the other hand, there are exceptions such as Brook's Italian VA, who did a ''perfect'' job at that.
** Actually, the laughs are played quite good (just listen to Perona) but they did, however, simply ignored the 90% of the remaining laughs.
* Kodachi in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', who (as mentioned above) shares Naga's voice actress. Mocked often in ''RanmaAbridged''.

* [[http://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbeforeswine/2011/10/25 This]] recent ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine comic had Rat go out on a date with a girl who laughed this way when he told her a joke. He then [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it with the line, "Bad laughs, the great deal-breaker."
* ''LifeInHell'' - in a segment on love, there are a couple of reference to one's spouse's hyena-like laugh.
[[/folder]]

* Wolfang Amadeus Mozart, as played by Tom Hulce in the film version of ''{{Amadeus}}'', had a [[TheHyena hyena-like cackle]].
** According to the writings of some of Mozart's friends, the man really ''did'' laugh like that, making this entry TruthInTelevision.
* In ''Film/FightClub'', Tyler tells the Narrator when they first meet: "you have a sick desperation in your laugh"
* One of the murder victims in ''Film/HotFuzz'' had one. [[spoiler:In a subversion of convoluted murder mystery plots, it turns out that this mundane annoyance was actually ''the reason'' that she was killed.]]
* Creator/DwightFrye's Renfield's laugh in the original english film version of ''Film/{{Dracula|1931}}'', which was copied by Arte Johnson when he played the role in the spoof ''Film/LoveAtFirstBite''.
** Peter Mac Nicol likewise imitates the laugh when he plays Renfield in ''Film/DraculaDeadAndLovingIt''.
* ''Film/MaryPoppins'' has a whole song about annoying laughs. With some bad jokes thrown in for good measure!
* Joe Cox's laugh from ''Film/RoboCop1987''.
* The Chief Blue Meanie's laugh from ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'', it goes something like "Eeee heee eee heee heee heee!".
* Salacious B. Crumb, the Kowakian monkey-lizard from ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', has one of the most obnoxious laughs of all time. Nobody complained about ''him'' dying in the explosion of the sail barge.
* '30s and '40s movie comedian Hugh Herbert had a constant "Hoo-hoo!" laugh as part of his onscreen schtick. This was later borrowed by WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck.
* A date gets interrupted in ''Film/MurielsWedding'' by two men who seem to think Muriel is hurt and choking.

* Scutt Farkus in ''AChristmasStory''. Needless to say, when Ralphie snapped and beat the snot out of him, it was very satisfying to watch.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels have a few:
** Carcer from ''Discworld/NightWatch''. Used as one of quite a few indicators that the man is a [[AxCrazy complete]] [[PsychoForHire psychopath]].
** Mr. Cletes from ''Discworld/SoulMusic''. Hat. Hat. Hat.
** A minor variant (and only mentioned perhaps twice) is Strappi's laugh from ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'', which is described as "a harsh gargling at the back of the throat."
* Count Olaf and Esme Squalor from ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents''.
* ''Mariel of {{Redwall}}'' introduces the Honourable Rosemary, whose laugh is loud and long enough to deafen everyone in hearing range. It's also said to be able to ''curdle cream from thirty paces away.''

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action Television]]
* Sylvia from DearJohn; her ex-husband even informed her of this.
* Myrna- Oscar Madison's secretary on ''Theatre/TheOddCouple''.
* Harold from TheRedGreenShow is a cinch for this one.

* ''Series/FamilyMatters'' Steve Urkel.
* Series/RedDwarf: The Low version of Lister.
* On an episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' when Cuddy is trying to get pregnant, House brings one of the sperm donors she's considering in for an interview. The man had a very annoying laugh which came out when he was nervous. This was one of House's arguments for why he shouldn't be considered as the father.
* One episode of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' has Jerry dating a woman with an annoying laugh, and he can't bear to tell her. It's compared to "Elmer Fudd sitting on a juicer."
* Kitty from ''[[ThatSeventiesShow That 70's Show]]''. Unlike a lot of television characters who have annoying laughs, who basically have annoying laughs because the actor involved does, Kitty's laugh is '''''not''''' the actual laugh of actress Debra Jo Rupp.
* ''Series/FawltyTowers'': Sibyl Fawlty. A combination of the Machine-Gun Chuckle with a Donkey Bray finish. According to her husband, it sounds like "somebody machine-gunning a seal".
-->'''Sybil:''' A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-''EUUUUH!!''
* Boycie from ''OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' has the machine gun rattle down to a fine art.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'':
** One of Janice's annoying quirks is her laugh.
** Chandler's work laugh is very annoying and he explains it was invented for survival reasons. He warns Monica she will need to invent one as well to survive his work colleagues. She does.
* Chrissy on ''Series/ThreesCompany'' was a snorter.
--> '''Janet:''' Well, at least I know how to laugh. Ahahahahaha! What do you do? ''SNORT!'' ''SNORT!'' ''SNORT!'' ''SNORT!'' ''SNORT!'' ''SNORT!...''
* Another snorter is ''Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark''.
* One of the guests on Creator/MalcolmMcDowell's ''Series/FantasyIsland'' had a fantasy about hooking up with his childhood crush, who he remembers as having a wonderful laugh. Maybe it was selective memory, but when his fantasy comes true it turns out she has a kind of glass-breaking rattle.
* A ''Series/{{Wings}}'' episode has Helen dating a man with a laugh like a [[TheHyena braying hyena]]. It becomes so annoying that Helen eventually decides to break up with him because of it, but before she can do so, he dumps her because he cannot stand her Southern accent.
* Fran Fine from ''TheNanny''. Her laugh is practically the tagline for the show.
* ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' has the character Strife and, later, his twin brother Deimos, who are both infamous among the other characters for their hyena-like laugh:
-->'''Hercules''': "Deimos... I'd know that laugh anywhere!"
-->'''Deimos''': "Ah-hahahaha!"
-->'''Hercules''': "That was ''not'' a compliment!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AT9luJUReY Tony Atlas]] uses this to great effect on WWECW.
* Jerry Ledbetter (Paul Eddington) on ''Series/TheGoodLife'' usually deployed a rather grating snicker.
* ''Series/EverDecreasingCircles'', written by ''Good Life'' creators John Esmonde and Bob Larbey, followed in Jerry Ledbetter's wake with Howard Hughes (Stanley Lebor) and his almost improbably high-pitched giggle.
* The kids possessed by [[TheHyena hyenas]] in the season 1 ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "The Pack".
* Vince Masuka from ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' does a Beavis and Butthead style laugh whenever he or someone else makes a double entendre.
* ''SonnyWithAChance'' has a blogger named Sharona, who has a very irritating, high-pitched laugh.
* ''MysteryScienceTheater3000:'' Phantom of Krankor from the experiment ''PrinceOfSpace''. While his drawn-out "Heeeeeeeh heeeeeeeeeh heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh" never draws any comment from characters in the original movie, it earns him much derision from the SOL crew.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_h0_OUSScc Arthur Atkinson]] of ''TheFastShow''' has an annoying voice and "personality" at the best of times, but his laugh could kill small animals.
* In ''Series/SesameStreet'', Bert had a machine gun chuckle, while Ernie had one which was sort of a cross between wheezing and gargling.
** Elmo also has his annoying "Uh-HA-ha-ha-ha-ha!"
* [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Guido Geller]] of ''CameraCafe'' fame [[SmallReferencePools used to be]] the page picture, [[DissonantLaughter much to Patti's horror.]]
* Skull from ''Franchise/PowerRangers''' early seasons definitely had this. As does his son, Spike, in ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai''.
* Melanie Pearson from ''{{Neighbours}}'', not helped by her overreacting to Henry's jokes.
* The kid villain Tram from ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman'' has one of these.
* Mickey Doyle from ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'', not helped by him also being TheHyena.
* Sheldon from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. Whether it's supposed to be his way of actually laughing, or as a sarcastic chuckle for what us lower forms see as "humor", it's annoying.
* Desi Arnaz as Ricky Ricardo in ''Series/ILoveLucy''. His laugh sounded phoney, and kind of forced, but it wasn't. That was Arnaz's real laugh.
* ''Travelers'' had a notorious example in Robin Kipp. It actually proved useful at a haunted house site, when she dressed up as a phantom. Lucky those who haven't heard it.
* DC Kray from ''Series/TheThinBlueLine'', very much so.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Radio]]
* Disk jockey Elliot Segal, of ''Elliot In The Morning'' in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, has a very annoying laugh.
* Australian cricket commentator Kerry O'Keefe.
* Dawn from the ''Rob, Arnie and Dawn Show'' has a very cackly and annoying laugh.
* During his tenure on ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'', the various laughs of Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling, were a fairly big part of the show - ranging from a low dirty giggle to a big expressive "Whoop!"
* Franchise/SherlockHolmes, in the BBC Radio adaptations starring Clive Merrison. Watson complains about it a few times.
[[/folder]]


[[folder:Theater]]
* In ''Oklahoma!'', the protagonist Curly dates a girl named Gertie to make heroine Laurey jealous. Gertie must be played by an actress who can affect an obnoxious laugh. An example of a particularly ear-splitting performance can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHtLvFbWqoQ here]]. That's Gertie cuddling Curly and laughing uproariously at the beginning of the video, while Laurey looks on from the porch in disgust and irritation.
* AVeryPotterMusical: This page needs to start doing things... THE UMBRIDGE WAY! A DERDERDERDERDERDER. The extended version when [[CrosscastRole s/he]] tries to keep Harry from going to Hogsmeade is even more annoying.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* From ''KingdomHearts'': Vexen and Larxene in the Japanese versions of ''Re: Chain of Memories''. People on Website/YouTube loop their laughs and dare people to see how long they can listen to them without clawing their ears forcibly off their heads. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRfMle74Zoc Have a listen.]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHy99AllPMk&feature=related Or two.]] Make it stop indeed.
** Seeing how he shares his Japanese voice actor with Vexen, Professor Hojo from ''DirgeOfCerberus'' also possesses a high-pitched maddening cackle. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hg66mdGHSHs Hear it for yourself]].
* Heidegger from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has a "gya-ha-ha" laugh that irritates the other heads of Shinra to no end. There's also Scarlet's "kya-ha-ha," Bugenhagen's "Ho ho ho" SantaClaus laugh and... well, let's just say this game is loaded with characters that have annoying laughs and leave it at that.
** And from the same franchise, we have the infamous laughing scene in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' between Tidus and Yuna. (Though, of course, they were forcing it.)
*** "'''''HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!'''''"
* Moe the clown from case 3 of ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice for All''. "Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha!"
** Also, [[TheHyena Calisto Yew]] from ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations''.
* In ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', Misha's trademark "Wa ha ha~!" laugh seems to be this; it certainly seems to grate on Hisao's nerves after a while. Probably a good thing the developers decided not to go with full voice-acting...
* Soda Popinski of ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' lets out a truly aggravating laugh when he knocks you down. It's bad enough in the Wii version, where it's a real person; in the NES version, it's an ''eight-bit digitized laugh'', similar to the one used by [[GameOverMan Ganon]] in ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink''.
** Nearly everyone does this in the Wii version.
* VideoGame/TeamFortress2: Given [[RuleOfFunny the nature of the game]] and [[BrattyHalfPint the character]], it's almost certain that the Scout's self-satisfied laughter is designed to annoy the people he kills. Given how he's also the source of many a MostAnnoyingSound, this isn't all that surprising.
** And then there's the Spy's laugh. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvLj2deytB8 GAHAHAHAHA-HAA-snortsnort-AHAHAHAHA-snort-HAHAHA!]]
* Of course, there's the legendary DuckHunt dog, whose laugh has earned him the hatred of an entire generation of gamers.
* In ''{{killer7}}'', your enemies are the dreaded Heaven Smiles who [[TakingYouWithMe blow up on contact]] and laugh constantly. Each different Smile has a different laugh, a good number of which are extremely annoying. (Especially the Bombhead Smiles)
* If you don't defeat all of the pigs in AngryBirds, they will do a really annoying laugh. Thankfully you can skip it by pressing the "Restart Level" button.
* [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Laharl]]'s attempt at an EvilLaugh in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series can be this, especially to Etna, who considers it the MostAnnoyingSound.
* Evil's EvilLaugh from ''VideoGame/CustomRobo''.
* A number of characters in ''LeagueOfLegends'' have rather annoying laughs, most infamously Lux and Lulu who both have incredibly high-pitched and hysterical giggles. Extremely aggravating when spammed non-stop at your opponents, although you may find your teammates leaving you to fight alone just to get away from the sound.
* [[VideoGame/TwistedMetal Sweet Tooth]] and [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi]] lets out one of these in ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale''.
* [[RecurringExtra Ripper Roo]] from ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'', though his laugh track is barrowed from Disney's ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp''.
* Rochelle's laugh in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' comes off as shrill and annoying, which is what [[{{Troll}} some players do to annoy everyone else]].
* A knight's laugh in ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'' is used to show how pompous and corrupt he is, especially during the attack on Gurak civilians.
* In ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle'', Ultimate-Life-Form Kars has an ''unbelievably '''irritating''' '' cackle ''(Ha~Ha~HaHaHa~!)'' whenever he uses his long-ranged, obscenely powerful and ''unblockable'' tentacle attack that counters any and ''all'' attempts to jump close to him.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Rich Evans of RedLetterMedia has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTEdf5VS3EA&feature=related an amazing laugh]] that the fans love, but still fits this trope.
* His laugh is probably the most annoying thing about ''WebVideo/TheAnnoyingOrange''.
* Penelope from ''TheQuestForGeekdom'' when she tries to do an EvilLaugh.
* LetsPlay/{{Gronkh}} tends to imitate one of these in OhCrap moments.
* During the wake held for their deceased comrade Jetstream, Achilles of the ''[[GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse Global Guardians]]'' turned to his teammate, Ultra-Man, and drunkenly asked, "Could you explain how a huge guy like you laughs like a six year old girl?"
* Nahman of the LetsPlay/GIProz has a "Monkey Laugh," which can be heard on Kieza's channel.
* ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged'': Raye. "Where did you fly off to Darien? The moon? '''HA. HA. GET IT? I MADE A ''FUNNY'' KIDS.'''"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]

** The Screwy Squirrel cartoons contained an woodpecker with a laugh reminiscent of a woodpecker screaming through a duck lure.
** Screwy himself sometimes had a high pitched "ah-yuk-yuk-yuk" laugh.
* The earliest version of Characters/BugsBunny was merely irritating with a laugh very similar to Woody's...at a theater screening, when a dog finally hauled off and socked him, it was loudly cheered.
** Not to mention Characters/DaffyDuck's "Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo!" in his earlier cartoons, which is all but phased out in later shorts.

* Peter Griffin in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. His wife Lois too, in later episodes.

** One episode had Stewie Griffin having an annoying laugh that he used each time a joke came up in a sitcom.
* Kooky in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' and ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld''.
* Lemongrab of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. An utterly unnatural, unhappy shout of "HA HA HA!" The [[TheMentallyDisturbed mentally disturbed]] failed science experiment's voice is high-pitched, loud, and nasally ANYWAY, but when he laughs, he sounds absolutely deranged. "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH- OH! HAHAHAHHAHAHAOHHAOAHAOAHAOH..."
* Professor Calamitous' daughter [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Beautiful Gorgeous]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius''.
* ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} had the machine gun chuckle. You're hearing it in your head right now as you listen to this, aren't you?
--> "Aak akakakakaka"

* Scratch from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'':
--> "We've got you now, hedgehog! Ba-HA ha-HAAA!!"
** Being a robotic rooster, his laugh was intentionally made to sound like a rooster crow.
* Naturally, ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'''s famous "Huh huh huh huh", uttered whenever [[HehHehYouSaidX something could be taken as a dirty joke]], whenever they're aroused, or most commonly to end statements with. Would they really be Beavis and Butthead without it?
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' revealed that [[CreepyChild Heloise]] had cursed a man to never laugh because she thought his laugh was annoying.

* ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'': Reggie Bullnerd.
* Mandy from ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies''.
* Lok, Zariah and The Pupununu Tribe from ''WesternAnimation/TakAndThePowerOfJuju''.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes'' should most of them laughing at Baby Slyvester failing.
* Sheegwa from ''WesternAnimation/SagwaTheChineseSiameseCat''.
* Lemony, Rondo Jr., and the school students in YakkityYak.
* Max Hare in the ''SillySymphony'' short "Disney/TheTortoiseAndTheHare". "Ha-HAA-ha-HAA-ha-HAAAAAA!"
* The otherwise [[SmugSnake smooth and charismatic]] Flim Flam Brothers of the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E15TheSuperSpeedyCiderSqueezy6000 The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000]]" celebrate their villainous victory with a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4AUpn-vhYc gratingly nasal and monotonous cackle]].

** [[AlphaBitch Diamond Tiara]] and [[BetaBitch Silver Spoon]] have this too, especially when they are laughing at the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

* Oskar Kokoshka in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' has a very tired-sounding chuckle that he often makes at something he finds funny that other people around him do not.
--> Eh heh-heh-heh!
* This is a plot point in the ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' episode "Laugh Quake". Each of the title characters thinks the other has an annoying laugh, so they try to remedy it by going to a comedy club, where they are eventually kicked out. Later, both get crapped on by a bird, trying (and ultimately failing) to hold in their laughter, which eventually starts a chain reaction.

* Every character Fran Drescher has ever played has a donkey-like nasal bray of a laugh... because the actress herself really laughs like that.
-->'''Creator/RogerEbert''': Fran Drescher is a taste I have not acquired, but I concede that one could acquire it. It would help if she made a silent film.
* TomSelleck's actual laugh is of the "high-toned hyena cackle" variety.
* The late Michael Landon laughed that way, too.
* Creator/JimmyCarr, as he points out in the page quote.
* ''Series/AmericanIdol'' contestant Tatiana del Toro has a laugh that is equivalent to dragging one's fingernails down a blackboard. It's not supposed to be intentional, but that's debatable.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QLSRMoKKS0 Pretty much everywhere, it's gonna be hot.]]
* Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. "Octomom". Particularly frightening during her interview on ''TheView''.
* [[ILoveLucy Ricky Ricardo's]] distinctive "AHH! AHH! AHH! AHH!" laugh was his real life laugh. Occasionally you hear it in the live studio audience.

* At the final screening of ''{{Clerks}}'' at Sundance, where Creator/KevinSmith was hoping to find a distributor, after about 20 minutes or so, Kevin noticed someone with a loud, incredibly obnoxious laugh drowning out the laughter of ''the rest of the audience.''
