i like gervais but can't get into his cartoon. the format of louie is tough and there are certain bits i found to be completely unfunny - including the bus-driver sketch and the poker scene...but his standup routines kill and half of the bits (so far) have made me laugh.
it's arguably the best show on tv right now because there is nothing else to watch. true blood? entourage? hung? zzzz
Show doesn't flow very well, but there are some very funny parts.

He's no Dane Cook, that's for sure.

the whole "mopey" thing, while endearing, is boring as far as comedy goes.
