Hey Ventriloquist Friends!

I am looking for some help in the basics of joke writing for puppets

I do more magic than puppets. But I have some pretty cool folkmanis animals.

Soon I am scheduled to speak at a local church Sunday School. I have a few jokes with my 'pig' puppet... but I have a question / need advice

What would you say are the KEY ingredients for writing jokes and structuring a routine? What do I want to keep in mind?

I can give you an example of one of my jokes... (and by the way... I use a "squeaker" so I don't have to actually be a vent for this routine)
Me: So do you like sports? You do? Which? Football? You have a brother who plays in NFL ? what position? The Football!! (I squeak back his answers)

What are the key ingredients of a good joke?

Thanks so much for your advice and help!!
