* ''Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe'':
** Peter Sagal and the panelists do this a lot, though they all got in the fun in the September 5, 2015 broadcast doing Canadian and German accents.
** Maz Jobrani is very fond of quoting or imitating people with various accents. According to Peter, NPR has received a lot of less-than-appreciative mail from listeners about that.
** Creator/PatrickStewart did French!Captain Picard when he appeared on the show in 2014, and remarked that [[http://www.npr.org/2014/12/13/370331835/not-my-job-actor-patrick-stewart-gets-quizzed-on-g-i-joe the undeniably goofy result]] was the real reason Picard didn't have an audible French accent on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''.

** In "Tooth and Claw", David Tennant's Tenth Doctor adopted a fake Scottish accent in order to fool Queen Victoria. [[HowsYourBritishAccent Tennant's natural accent is Scottish]], though not quite the same as the one he uses in the episode. Rose also attempts a Scottish accent, but hers is so bad the Doctor tells her "just stop" after only three or four excruciating words.
