Sure! Although keep in mind these are from a paid (and material copywriten) course. So... please don't share outside our bubble of love.Ooh! Can you list some examples of the tools?
Here's the course I took many, many (15+?) years ago, but it's still there, being offered! It was bloody great when I took it, and I don't know why it would be worse now. I've taken many classes from this site, and they were ALL good. Although it's screenwriting, it's still storytelling. Comedy Writing for Screenplays
Preamble and promo done, here's some comedy info/tips I got from that class.
Punchlines need setups, a pattern that causes a predictable result. Here's some tips for creating punchlines:
ABSURD REQUEST: Ask them to do something ridiculous, insane or stupid.
COMPARISON: Show the similarity to something incongruent.
EXAGGERATION: Overstate or embellish the situation. Make an extravagant statement.
INSULT: A rude verbal attack. Give it to them...in the face.
METAPHOR: A is B. Describe one thing in terms of another.
MISINTERPRETATION: React with an incorrect but also incongruent perspective.
PARODY: An exaggerated imitation of something or someone else.
RENAME: Give it an alternative name that is funny.
REVERSAL: Go one way, then do a 180 degree turn.
UNDERSTATEMENT: The big, the powerful and the grandiose are reduced to the small, the everyday, and the unimportant. Start with something big, then complete it with an everyday response.
These are some scene builders:
Toppers: a second punchline unexpectedly springs up and exceeds the first one. A follow-up joke.
Running gag: same joke repeated through a section or the whole story, in a slightly different way each time
Physical Humor and prop humor (must feel natural for the scene.)
Anyway, just some examples of how to learn to write comedy.
There's a bunch of books on writing comedy. Weirdly, some are not that funny.
