Seth MacFarlane is certainly known or his impressions and voices that he can do and whether people know him by name or not, it is likely that they have seen his animated work.
Last night, he was able to share it with everyone as himself while playing a game with Jimmy Fallon, another master at the art of impressions. The two of them had great fun impersonating a variety of celebrities, some who they have done on occasion already.
The game operates when Jimmy Fallon presses a button that spins around and it will land on a random celebrity along with a random phrase. Each of them are supposed to give their best impression until the buzzer sounds and then they hand it over to the other comedian.

Seth MacFarlane is a genius at the art of impressions and throughout the 13 seasons portraying various characters on Family Guy, he has done more impressions than you can count. He is also known for Ted, A Million Ways To Die In The West and other animated shows such as The Cleveland Show and American Dad.
It is not often that Jimmy Fallon is able to invite a guest on to his show who is able to do impressions nearly as good as he does, but MacFarlane certainly gave it his best attempt, and his Liam Neeson impression to start it off was spot on. Of course, the Ted creator has also worked with Neeson on multiple occasions including his upcoming film, giving him plenty of time to get to know his voice as opposed to other celebrities.
Other impressions throughout the game included Fallon’s almost perfect Jerry Seinfeld impression, given the topic of Uber, having way too much fun with it, and later they did impressions of Pee-Wee Herman, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Ray Romano.
Seth MacFarlane and Jimmy Fallon are both excellent at impressions and there is no doubt about that. However, determining which is better can be a little tricky and we just hope that there will be another great round of impressions on another night of The Tonight Show.
