    This guy is so good at picking up tiny linguistic mistakes that I'm no longer certain I'm doing my own accent correctly.

  • Matthew Swenson (3 hours ago)

    I've got the same thing, my accent is pretty nonspecific and over pronounced American.

  • Godz Elite (Nov 23, 2018)

    can we just get a video of this guy switching accents

  • Dave Guerra (Nov 23, 2018)

    I know it is on purpose, but whoever is doing the editing on background screen shots is amazing.

    especially when it plays off what he's saying - the red sparrow segment is perfect. "take your time"

  • Stokely E Puente (Nov 16, 2018)

    This guy is seriously incredible, but mate, someone has to give recognition to the editing it’s just so spot on.

  • strictly1becca (Sep 17, 2018)

    i understand that erik has a real job that he probably loves a lot, but i would pay good money for a whole season's worth of episodes of this show.

  • mook_butt (Mar 15, 2019)

  • mook_butt (Mar 15, 2019)

    Tots Knows all I really need so many more videos with him, his own channel is a really great idea. Dunno if he'd have the time though, unfortunately.

  • Alexander Supertramp (Nov 15, 2018)

    Since stupid YouTube forgets everything I've seen. This is the 3 time I watch this thinking it might be a new episode. Please make a forth ep

  • AndyFromCALi (Feb 14, 2019)

    Alexander Supertramp that’s why YouTube does it

  • Richard Nixon (Jan 13, 2019)

    Can you guys do Canadian accents? I can’t see the difference between Canadian and American accent, so i want to see what a professional has to say about it.Why is my comment highlighted it not has one like... and also what is a highlighted comment?

  • M Mac (2 days ago)

    There’s a few words that give it away. Tour is one, Canadians sound more like toor and Americans sound more like tore. Canada has very few regional dialects. Obviously french and Newfoundland while there’s a slight east coast accent and Northern Ontario has some unique slang.

  • Golden Books (Dec 1, 2018)

    No Saoirse Ronan?? She's the accent QUEEN!!!!!!!

  • gain al (5 days ago)

    Yeah she's brilliant.

  • rebekah prather (Feb 1, 2019)

    C. Richardson *backs away slowly* you right you right apologies

  • Aidan Rogers (Sep 17, 2018)

    What if this guy isn't actually American but is just so good at accents?

  • Paul Olsen (Mar 4, 2019)

    He isn't that good at accents. He just knows a lot about them and understands how to get good at them.
