The humor probably isn't that sophisticated as much as it is well written. Gervais and Merchant basically wrote a drama, and you get so into the characters hopes and dreams, that the comedy has a bigger impact. Honestly Gervais as Brent is one of the greatest comedy performances of all time.
Carell is great too though, their characters are a little different. Brent is more ignorant where Scott is naive. Subtle difference but its there.
I just started watching The Wire, its tough keeping up with whats going on, but I started midway through whatever seasons playing on TV now.
