COMEDIAN Mario Rosenstock is to delight fans with a special music video sketch of new Irish football management duo Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane.

Rosenstock, whose comedy sketch programme 'The Mario Rosenstock Show' is a ratings hit on RTE Two, is filming a live Christmas special.

"We are filming a Roy and Martin music video for the Christmas special," Rosenstock told the Irish Independent.

"So it will cover the shooting of the video and how it was made."

The show was shot last Wednesday with two more filming slots to take place before Christmas.

It was the first time for Rosenstock to film TV in front of a live studio audience and he said his nerves got the better of him on a number of occasions.

"It was a huge day because we were filming sketches live in front of an audience for four or five hours," he told this newspaper.

The show which includes all new material, will also feature a sketch on well-known Dublin chef Donal Skehan.
