Watch Fred Armisen Show Off His Uncanny Ability to Mimic Any Accent on The Meltdown


Documentary Now! premieres Thursday, August 20 at 10p.

As anyone who has watched Portlandia or seen clips from Documentary Now! knows, Fred Armisen is a master of accents. He’s also a master of wigs, but that’s an entirely different subject.

Fred shows off his incredible talent for speaking in foreign tongues (California is another country, right?) in this sneak peek of this week’s episode of The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, which reunites him with Portlandia’s favorite bank teller, Kumail Nanjiani.

In the new clip, Fred lets the audience shout out very specific locations like Calabasas, California or Round Top, Texas and he responds in the appropriate accent. If you need to hire a regional dialect coach, Fred’s the man for the job.
