If it's comedy and silent, the comedy should be exclusively the result of the actor's actions. Don't bother with intertitles.
Just a guy getting into a precarious situation and all that that entails would be great. It can be simpler than you think. A guy trying to fix his broken car and everything going wrong, a man trying to comb his hair, but a strand keeps popping out, etc. The more outlandish it becomes for the situation, the better. Maybe he gets ticked off and smears glue all over his head. Watch some of Charlie Chaplin's silent stuff for ideas.
