In brief: Awake or asleep

Assuming you're talking about the flexible laryngoscopy that's done in the office, it shouldn't be too uncomfortable.
The doctor normally starst by giving you sprays to open and dull pain in the nose; sometimes we need to avoid one or the other depending on why you came in. Next, it should be inserted into the less congested nostril and advances painlessly. It's like having a big booger is all.
