Most of the impersonated ones are pretty poor. The only one that I found tolerable was Doctor Evil, and even then it wasn't really convincing. The official John Cleese one does sound like John Cleese... because it is John Cleese. I quite liked it for a while, but tired of the "I'm not going to carry your bags for you" speech when you got to your destination.

There are a few free proper third-party voices out there - not novelty ones, but free ones recorded by radio presenters and similar. Presumably it's a bit of free publicity for them. If you're tired of Jane and the other standard voices, they might be worth trying. I think you can download them from PocketGPSWorld amongst other places.
