Yes: Laughing can cause stomach cramps if you laugh hard and long enough. But laughing and smiling are healthy for us, so keep it up!

Probably: Unless you have abdominal pain on other occasions and, especially persistence of pain, tenderness,discoloration or swelling, I assume that laughing caused a type of transient abdominal muscle cramping.
