Mario to unveil a celebrity big wig

Comedian Mario Rosenstock's RTÉ sketch show will feature a new character on Monday night.

Meet 'Celebrity Lawyer'; a legal eagle who likes to wear a King Louis XVI pompadour wig.

"There's a lot of period costume involved and pin- striped suits," Mario said.

The Gift Grub star refuses point blank to disclose who the 'celebrity lawyer' might be based on: "I will say he throws a good party," he would only add.

But The Diary thinks solicitor Gerald Kean won't be too bothered to see Mario in a similar King Louis XVI wig to the one he was wearing at his 50th birthday party in the Ritz Carlton Powerscourt a few years back. "Newspapers keep printing pictures of my 50th, which I absolutely love. In fact, if they want more, I can give them more," joked Gerald.

Look out too for a send-up of the hoodlums in Love/Hate on the same show this Monday night on RTÉ Two at 9.30pm.
