* {{Beakman|sWorld}} imitated the accent of the Famous Dead Guys he was disguised as...at least, the most stereotypical of them. For example, he did Alfred Nobel in a Swedish Chef-style lilt...and he even [[GotMeDoingIt got his assistant doing it]]...

** Likewise, when debating about 'shenanigans', Mac briefly adopts an Irish accent when he said "Evil shenanigans!". O'Hagan is not pleased, though not at the imitation.
-->'''O'Hagan''': I swear to God, I'll pistol whip the next guy who says 'shenanigans'!

* In ''Literature/{{Johannes Cabal|TheNecromancer}}'' the first carnival worker Cabal conjures up is a painfully thin black man (because Cabal forgot to use lard in his creation) named Bones. Cabal quickly orders him about and Bones (who normally has an accent described as American with slight French) quickly lapses into a stereotypical servile accent ("ain't ''dat'' de trufe") as a way of sarcastically obeying-which Cabal completely ignores.

* Detective Jimmy [=McNulty=] trying to affect a British accent in a second-season episode of ''Series/TheWire''... which is humorous, because while the ''character'' is from Baltimore, actor Dominic West is [[HowsYourBritishAccent British]].
** Proposition Joe also pulls this off (and much more effectively) when he's calling around the Baltimore Police Department to try to find out information on Herc, using three different accents (one for each operator he speaks to).

* ''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.
