...my manifesto was:

I'm going to try to be funny without doing jokes.

I'm gonna try to be really funny like when I would laugh when I was 15 - and it was absurd and you couldn't stop laughing and your sides ached. That's comedy. So that was my manifesto.

How do I get there? When I analyzed that type of comedy... What I was laughing at? I didn't know why I was laughing...

So I wanted to get people laughing and when they got home say, "I don't know why I was laughing."
