You Cannot Be Serious.

At Stratford Lawn Tennis Club, Grosvenor Square, Rathmines, Dublin 6 on Sunday July 23 at 2.30pm.

All proceeds will benefit “the preservation of our historic grass courts”.

Pat O’Mahony writes:

You Cannot be Serious is a comic re-staging of the greatest grass court rivalry of the modern era, starring Gift Grub’s Marion Rosenstock as Bjorn Borg versus Apres Match’s Gary Cooke as John McEnroe…

There’ll also be more serious exhibition games, including between two of Ireland’s greatest players of recent times, Conor Niland and James Cluskey, with more names to be confirmed shortly.

Plus family-fun tennis and complimentary prosecco, strawberries and cream.

Tickets €20 available here

This afternoon’s Late Lunch Live on TV3 with Martin King and Lucy Kennedy.

Niall Sheridan writes:

“Today on Late Lunch Live we had comedian Mario Rosenstock in. He undertook the task (below) of impersonating as many Irish and international personalities as he could in just two minutes. And he impersonatedMartin King for the very first time – leading to Martin challenging him to the ultimate test: The Weather Off”

How many?

Fair play though, in fairness.

Mario Rosenstock and his son Dashiell with the PPI Radio Awards Lifetime Achievement Award yesterday.

Some of his subjects were asked in today’s Irish Times for their thoughts on his work:

Vincent Browne: “I’ve mixed reactions. First of all I found it cringeworthy. Then I thought it couldn’t possible be representative of me. Later on, I realised that I actually possess some of these mannerisms that Mario acts out, much to my acute embarrassment.”

Miriam O’Callaghan: ” “I ‘genuinely’ don’t think I have ever used that word on TV or Radio. Mario does quite a lot of women in his routine; I have heard a whisper that he is trying to perfect Mary Byrne at the moment. I think there is an overactive gene in Mario that makes him not only comfortable but addicted to dressing like a lady. Genuinely!”

Glenda Gilson: “It’s great to see that a few people in this country are make money out of slagging people, especially me. Mario is always good for it, it’s great to have a laugh. For the record, I’ve never eaten a kebab, but if he wants to send me one I’ll happily try it.”
