Be cynical, be absurd, be brutally honest. All's fair game as long as it is unexpected. As long as even your worst joke has a punchline there will be some poor chap that at least chuckles at it. (Even if it's only at how bad your comedy is)

Be ridiculous and unexpected in a tasteful manner, that will at least get a chuckle out of some
Oh, and don't fear to make shit, write as you will

Puns. Lots of puns and wordplay. And sneaky references to pop culture.

Personally, my idea of comedy (or the type I can write) starts with a comedic scene: in other words a situation that's funny or awkward in some way. Then I have a narrator who describes it in such a casual way that you're like is he/she just going to ignore the fact that that's wierd?

That's the type of humor that gets me, so that's what I write but what everyone else has said is correct, do what's funny for you. For example, I find a demon king complaining about the difficulties of his job funny (if it's written well). Do what you find funny.
