Laugh Attack was an XM Satellite Radio channel featuring uncensored comedy from Canada. It was born in November 2005 as part of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission's (CRTC) regulations for Canadian content on the XM platform.

The channel features uncensored Canadian stand-up and sketch comedy and promises to keep America informed about Canadian culture, as they have been "for over a quarter of a decimetre."

The Program Director for Laugh Attack is Joe Thistel. The on-air personalities are Ben Miner, Darren Frost, Dave Martin, Kathleen McGee, John Melville, Nicole McCallum, Bryan Cox, The Prez, Dan Busheikin, Jordan Bortolotti, Chris Rochon, Barry Taylor, Svetlana Pupkina and Sandra Zee.

This channel, The Verge, Radio Parallèle, and/or ATN-Asian Radio will be preempted by XM Radio Canada in order to air extra NHL play-by-play on channels 235 - 239.

Laugh Attack was not added to Sirius after the Sirius/XM merger on November 12, 2008.

Laugh Attack was renamed Canada Laughs and made available on SIRIUS and XM in May 2013.[1]
