Portlandia star Fred Armisen may be a man of a thousand Pacific Northwestern faces, but he would also like you to know his vocal mimicry is just as impressive — and unbound to intercontinental region. To prove it, Armisen stopped by The Tonight Show to chat with host Jimmy Fallon and show off his impeccable mimicry. He cycled through each member of The Beatles — a feat that Fallon admits he’s only known Fred to do well — and toured the American South with state-specific accents. (Tip: Arkansas accents require a clipped “pull back” after each consonant and Tennesseans are always “thin-kin a-bout it.”)
