  1. Outstanding work!
    Jen has a very good sense of humor unlike some guests and anchors.
    BTW Michael Che, Jefferson and Washington were not slave owners. See law passed by Jefferson in 1808 outlawing the import of humans as slaves.
    They owned SPADES, NOT SLAVES.
    That's a P not an L there.
    They were organic farmers and framers of the constitution.
    Yes and they invented the dumb waiter and his sidekick Sal.

  2. I mean, it was a good impression. But after going “oh wow! That sounds just like her!” for 10-15 seconds. You’re kind of waiting for it to get funny…

    SPOILER ALERT…… it doesn’t

  3. heheheheheee😆 I was waiting for the, "Pheebs!"😁
    *ahem* "PHrEEBSh!" {lowercase letters represent the "barely said, but still kinda there" whatnots in her speakilty~verbage… does anyone ACTUALLY know what I'm trying to express?}
    I remember the first time I saw Vanessa~Rachel, every expression was ridicucrazilly~awesmazing~perfectory..ness! 🙆 Then she said, "Pheebs! {PHrEEBSh!}" & well, yeah…

    JoySplosions.

    Anywonk,
    Giggliciousness.

  4. i have just started watching it on netflix and i am already in love with the show.the comic timing of all the cast is just amazing.and wow,Monica is really hot.

  5. Why is she always so irritated by such Friends bits. There in a Jimmy Kemmel's episode too, she appeared so annoyed.

  6. Awww she was my top girl crush list til she made that top bad breath list….then I was like maybe that's why she do the whole talk through teeth thing….I don't know….

  7. The impersonator doesn't look like Rachel at all (the hair doesn't count), but if you scroll down and listen to the voice, it's 99% on point. Almost unrecognizable.

  8. F minus for looks and A+++++ for voice. I mean she does not look like Jennifer at all. But she has the voice perfectly

  9. Everybody loves Raymond, Simpsons, Scrubs, Community and maybe even South Park were way way way better than Friends..
