If you never talk in a fun accent you may still read this thread though.
I love the aussie accent. I don't do it well,but I try. I like the the way they add e to the end of words that end with o. Like no is no-e. Or heavier like noy.
I like to fun talk in an Acadie kind of accent. It's like a mix of quebequois and maritime, sort of vibe to it.
I can do quite a few. When I got telesellers ring me up a few years ago, I'd pretend to be a mentally ill Pakistani. I can do about 6 different types of gay accent. Unfortunately tho, when I wrote a stupid song with Michael Jackson as the singer, my impression sounded more like Macey Gray meets Barry White.. : ( Either way, I think jail would be more likely than a long TV career...
I also like doing childrens tv characters and politicians etc. I suppose I leaned most of em in work just after college when I wanted to get sacked before starting a business.. Some rude prick would ring up with a complaint, I'd tell him I was (cough) the snr manager. The accent I'd put on would slowly get more and more ridiculous... like some puppet off the English equivalent of Sesame Street...
My favorourite accent to do is this childrens tv p.ink hippo. I like it because it can really annoy some people, when I want to.

Strangely, seems they've took a bit of a strange turn post their kids tv careers... Hmm..

I can do the British and Australian accents easiest.
Are any of these 'efforts' on Youtube?
I don't do other accents.
I like to do a West Indian/Rasta accent.
