Can anyone give me the low-down on Dogberry in Much Ado About Nothing? What's he like? Is he a nice fellow? Is he a groveller? Is he a bore? Is he jovial, quiet, happy or sad? What makes him funny? Thank you!

Taken from sparknotes.com:

Dogberry -
The constable in charge of the Watch, or chief policeman, of Messina. Dogberry is very sincere and takes his job seriously, but he has a habit of using exactly the wrong word to convey his meaning. Dogberry is one of the few “middling sort,” or middle-class characters, in the play, though his desire to speak formally and elaborately like the noblemen becomes an occasion for parody.
