The Planet Babylon Awards, a now-closed* comment poll where people got to choose their favorite impression by Randy Harrison, Laurel Holloman or Rachel Shelley featured in this video

Rachel Shelley, Randy Harrison, and Laurel Holloman during their Q&As at the Ultim’Art Planet Babylon Convention in Paris by secretgirlin2004 ,

have inspired me to put an ever so slight Rachel-Shelley-centric spin on the subject by asking:

What is your favorite impression done by Rachel Shelley?

a) “Indian auntie” in her interview on the Australian radio show The Hump Day Crew

(listen to the entire interview here)

b) “Erin Daniels” at the Planet Babylon Convention (see video at top of page from 0:10 min on)

c) “Miss Shirley Brahms” from Are You Being Served? at the Planet Babylon Convention (see video at top of page from 0:42 min on)

d) “Lucy Lawless” at her FNAC Q&A in ’09 – from 6 min on in this video

and/or at the Planet Babylon Convention (see video at top of page from 1:15 min on)

e) “Leisha Hailey” at the Planet Babylon Convention (see video on top at page from 1:45 min on)

f) “American actress” at the end of her The L Word S3 Podcast

g) something else

– EXTRA CLIP: In her The Hump Day Crew interview, Rachel also told an unjoke in such a hilariously unfunny way that I simply cannot not include it here (even though it doesn’t really fit into the “impression” category…):

Got a favorite? More than one? Found “something else” you’d like to share? Please comment or drop me a tweet.

*EDIT 11/19/10: I bow my head to Laurel Holloman (and her admirers : )), the Planet Babylon Award for her excellent Shane impression is well-deserved.

  1. Rachel’s impression contest! As a Leisha fan I like the Leisha moment, but I have to vote for the Indian auntie. So hilarious.

  2. @yodastfu The entire end of that Hump Day Crew interview cracked me up! Have just decided to include her “unjoke” from it as an extra clip because it’s just too cute to be left unposted…

  3. I thought her ‘Are You Being Served’ impressions were the funniest – but then I’m probably biased as that show is such a classic! Her Erin Daniels was pretty hilarious too though, and her Australian accent! God, it was all just so cute. I’ve never heard that joke one at the end though – that made me laugh so much. Of all the jokes in the world, that was the only one she could remember?!

    • Hadn’t watched/listened to these myself in a while – good times!

      Her delivery of that hilariously random unjoke continues to make me laugh. I’m also pretty sure that the “Auntie & Auntie” radio show proposed in the “Indian auntie” one would be highly entertaining (but possibly not quite politically correct *ahem* ;)).
