The brainchild of comedian and satirist Mario Rosenstock, the phenomenal Gift Grub returns to Castlebar after their previous sell out show last April. With nine top five albums and more than half a million CD sales, Gift Grub is the biggest selling Irish comedy/spoken word CD of all time. Catch all your favourite Gift Grub characters live on stage for this comedy extravaganza. Featuring Roy, Daniel, Jose, Bertie, Cowen and many more.
So popular was Mario's portrayal of José Mourinho singing 'José And His Amazing Technicolor Overcoat' that 'The Special One' invited Mario to perform a private show for the entire Chelsea squad. The song was subsequently released, with Mourinho's blessing, as a hit single. Similarly in December 2005, a parody of Will Young's song 'Leave Right Now' relating to the events surrounding Roy Keane's dismissal from Manchester United was released as a charity single and went straight in at the number one position on the Irish Christmas charts.
Having joined the team at Ian Dempsey’s Breakfast Show on Today FM 10 years ago, Mario Rosenstock’s Gift Grub continues to attract tens of thousands of listeners from across Ireland every week-day morning. Leaving no stone unturned to get his characters, even using a chicken tikka sandwich to do Brian Cowen, his success is not only due to his incredible mimic skills, but also to his astute ability to react with razor sharp satire to breaking news stories and current affairs.
