Courtesy laughter is extended to the boss or someone that believe's they are important any time they say anything that is either remotely funny or not funny at all. Usually heard in board rooms in front of the customer or anyone else that may have influence on project funding.
Boss: "Thanks everybody for coming to the meeting and making me feel important"

Boardroom: "He......he.....he...he...."

Alan (whispering): "Damn, did you hear Jeff? That kiss-ass had the loudest courtesy laughter in the room".
