Is it crude, cynical and often inapropriate humor like Always Sunny in Philadelphia? That's the type of thing i've been in the mood for lately, but i'd take 30 Rock type humor too if it's distinctive enough from that show.
Its varied tbh. Pierce is a crude older man with racial stereotyping and some suggestive remarks to women. Honestly its more a mix of witty dialogue, sarcasm, banter, rambling, nerdy humour between Troy and Abed, observational etc. There's the odd bit of crude humour from a couple of characters, but its far closer to 30 Rock and Parks & Rec in terms of language than say Californication or even Two and a Half Men. McQueen says though that there's tremendous depth and meaning to the dialogue and any crude humour has a merited place on the show as opposed to some comedies where it just feels like an excuse to pander to people looking for swearing without any thought beyond that.
Barefoot girl sitting on the hood of a Dodge
Drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain
The Rat pulls into town rolls up his pants
Together they take a stab at romance
And disappear down Flamingo Lane
