Louis Walsh wasn't going to get away that easily - X Factor judge is Mario Rosenstock's latest comic subject

He’s a Mayo man with a boyband mission, and now he’s the latest victim of Mario Rosenstock’s comic impressions.

X Factor judge Louis Walsh wasn’t going to get away that easily. He’s one of the impressionist’s hilarious subjects for his latest Gift Grub show as it comes to the Olympia Theatre this week. 

Mario is looking forward to the shows and said one of the most rewarding aspects of the job is to make someone laugh.

"The nicest experience I've ever had in this business is seeing a text message that comes into the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show every so often," he said of the show where his legendary Gift Grub sketches began.

"It is pretty much always the same text – not from the same person – 'In stitches in the car laughing. And I've just looked around and everyone in other cars was laughing as well.'

"Not being over the top, that is as close as a communal experience as you can get. I think we want to do something with our lives that has a lot of meaning and if I can do something that a lot of people are laughing at at the same time, that's the biggest meaning I could get," super Mario smiles.
