Yes and no. There are four species of kookaburras, one of which is also known as the laughing jackass (but not by Australians). The Laughing Kookaburra and the Blue-winged kookaburra are the main species of Australian kookaburras known for their raucous calls. In particular, the Laughing kookaburra has a distinctive and recognisable laughing call which is used to mark its territory.
