I thought it did an amazing job of striking a balance between Monty Python-esque humour and making (some of) the characters real enough for you to care about.

Actually, I thought most of the characters were surprisingly real, even the ones who were most extreme - Barry, for example.

Waj and Faisal weren't much more than very, very stupid, though - admittedly each in his own unique way, but it wasn't exactly realistic. Whereas Barry, I agree, was rather scarily like people I have met in real life.

We had someone at a former law firm I was at who converted to Islam - a small, ginger shrimp of a man, and he insisted on taking over the showers for his praying, and whinging about the precise direction of Mecca and treating his boss as if she was untouchable, and it occurred to us that there were several people who were Muslim (born not converts) in the firm who'd just got on with it for years. And I hadn't thought of this bloke for years until I saw Barry and it all came flooding back.
