Davy spills the coffee beans on truth behind Mario's skit
It took more than two months to form the current government, but for funny-man Mario Rosenstock, it was well worth the wait.
The members of the 32nd Dáil have provided the impersonator with a rich cast of new characters to lampoon.
"It's a golden period," he said with a mischievous grin at a photo call yesterday to launch Ireland's Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice charity fundraising event taking place on September 15.
Clare GAA hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald, who also attended the event at the Harold's Cross Hospice yesterday, said Mario had him in stitches when he uncannily portrayed him sleeping with the Liam McCarthy trophy, which he actually did.
"It was when we won the All Ireland in 2013 and he had a picture of me with the cup in bed and he was right, except he was only guessing. I was laughing myself because it was around the time that I did it for the craic myself at home, just messing, and no one knew it bar myself," he said.
