The Analysis Essay should build on and revise your Exploratory Essay. Don’t start over, use at least two of the course readings to help analyze your examples by breaking them down and showing how they work.
The readings will usually help by either giving you a way of framing your argument as a type of relief/superiority/bonding/something-like-that or they may give you ways of explaining specific things that happen when you laugh at incongruities and absurdities and other specific formal aspects of humor.
