Humor must have some truth to it or it cannot be funny. We all know people who are innately funny. We also know people who do funny things. Rarely, are they the same person.
For humor to be truly funny, it requires a story that is really hilarious. The exception is a story delivered with impeccable timing and appropriateness.
Before attempting comedy when there is a crowd or an audience present, I recommend studying the delivery of several comedians. Learn their timing and their pauses. If they are good, they have mastered it. You can even steal their jokes as they have been tested and proven to be funny.
Good humor does not need to be explained. It is obvious. Not only should a joke not be explained (unless we "don't get it"), it should not be dissected. If a joke is dissected - it dies.
Priceless humor is a social event. It is fine to laugh at something when you are alone. In fact, I believe that is a healthy event. But, the really funny stuff requires another person to be present because the smiling and laughter are human interactive traits.

Back in the woods, a redneck's wife went into labor in the middle of the night, and the doctor was called out to assist in the delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, "Here, you hold this high so I can see what I'm doing." Soon a baby boy was brought into the world.
"Whoa there," said the doctor. "Don't be in

Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl.
"No, no, don't be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern... It seems there's yet another one in there!" cried the doctor.

bewilderment, and asked the doctor,
"Do you think it's the light that's attractin' 'em?"
