I sound technicly like John Dimmagio, but yet I can do all of Billy West's Characters really good (i.e. Zoidberg, Zapp Brannagin, and Richard Milhous Nixon *AROOR*)

Would love to hear that; record yourself doing a few impressions and upload it somewhere!
Or is anyone else up for that? A PEEL thread with fan recordings?

Pffth, quitter.

Your Best Impression...

I'd love to be able to do a Futurama impression, but my accent would kill any attempt on the spot.

Teral, its not down to your accent, somepeople I know have heavy accents (scottish and victorian  wink ) but that doesnt stop them

I sound a bit like Billy West if I pitch my voice just right. I can impersonate Fry, Farnsworth, Smitty, Leo, and Nixon perfectly, but Zapp and Zoidberg still sound off to me.

(Thank you Teral for the link.)
Wow Grim those impressions were great and really fun to listen to. Impossible to tell that you're from Australia. I can't impersonate anyone, ever, except for Ralph Wiggum. (and who can't?)

I can do Dave Herman's 'Scruffy' voice.  And that's all.  Curse my forced and nasal larynx.

I'll come back and edit this, but for now I'll say Phil Lamar, because I love doing Samurai Jack's voice evey now and again.  (Also Aku, but that's offtopic)

Most non-wireless headphones can be used for a mic, connect it to the mic input and talk into the left (IIRC) speaker. It's not great but it works.
I have not even tried to do any Futurama voices, and I'm not very good at doing voices, especially not in English...

I don't think there's one voice actor I sound much like in particular. Impressions I can do palatably include Nixon, Horrible Gelatenous Blob, Free Waterfall Sr. and Judge Whitey, although the problem with Whitey is that sometimes I make him sound a bit too much like Lloyd Grossman.  red face

Hmm...if I try, I can probably sound like Amy.  Leela...well, it's hit or miss.  I can kinda get the pitch, but my voice doesn't have the same quality at all.  If I sound like anyone normally, it's probably Michelle.  Which is funny, 'cause if my boyfriend's voice was a little higher pitched, he'd sound exactly like Fry (he can already do a decent Nixon impression...well, he's got the "aruu" down.  It's actually kinda cute  smile)

The voice actor I sound most like is surely Katey. I can do a right on the spot impression of her Leela. I guess Leela's also the character I sound most like too. And I can do an even better impression of Leela singing. Though my Amy's not too shabby either. And I've also discovered I can do a pretty satisfying Zapp impression.    smile

I can't do Fry or Bender at all. but at time my professor ain't too off...

*bold used to point out whether I sound like a voice actor OR a character- there's a difference.   wink

As far as characterss go:  Morgan Proctor mixed with Heather mixed with Amy.  It seems I have moments I sound like Leela, more often when I'm not trying.  I must say, though, I do the Marge Simpson hummy growly thing a lot...

If we were to extend it to commentators as well, I can do a (very dodgy) Rich Moore, and a passable Claudia Katz.
In terms of who I sound most like generally...
probably Tress MacNeille, though I don't have anything like her range, but I sound a little like her and her laugh is pretty similar to mine
ie, insane, loud and evil.   evil laugh

If you ignore the fact that I'm English!

I can do Fry and Nixon fairly good...

Ages ago there was a comedy record of the Watergate break-in, and I (then) could do all of the characters on the recording.

Nixon: "Come on boys, they'll never corner us in the Oval Office."

I can do a lot of Billy West's characters (Zoidberg, Zapp, Nixon), but not Fry. I can do a couple of DiMaggio's as well (Sal, Mr. Panucci).

Just talking normally, I've been told many times I sound like Amy. I can impersonate Cubert and Tinny Tim pretty well, and I rock at talking like Nixon. I can sing like Leela and Fry if I try. That's about it...

edit: Oh! I can sing like Farnsworth, too...

I can do a passable Nixon and reiterate the word "swish" in an almost Fry-like manner. Apart from that I'm not too good at impressions.

I can do Zapp, Nixon, Kif, Zoidberg, Roberto (A personel favourite), Beezlebot and Bender.
I have a cold at the moment though so they come out all warbly.    tongue 
Benders voice is a bit tricky because he changes his tone and the way he says things very often. If anybody can do a good Fry, I will be awed.
