Gibraltar return and obscene comedians

April 26, 2008

I went back to gibraltar last weekend for a little visit nearly 1 year after I left. A lot has changed, and even more hasn’t. New buildings have gone up, the impressive ocean village development on marina bay is looking good, and gib is still full of chavs on mopeds who try to run you over on zebra crossings and overpriced tourist tat shops.

Last night I went to the local comedy club for a friend’s birthday, and one of the comedians was Jason Rouse, a Canadian comedian who I’ve seen before at the Comedy Store in Haymaket (London) and who is billed as ‘edgy’. He was obscene, but very very funny. If you’re easily offended, then stay away because nobody is safe. I on the other hand, haven’t laughed so much in years 🙂

My drift car is still not complete, I’m hoping it will be by next weekend.

Managed to find Dogma on DVD a few days ago, it’s been re-released on the Film4 label since the original production or distribution company went bankrupt.

Poker wise I’ve not played much, having been tempted into blackjack by some friends locally, and I’m pleased to report that I’m about £3k up playing £5 a spot but using progressions and also playing the perfect pair bonuses – I ran into a couple of real platinum shoes and started getting perfect pair after perfect pair (a side-bet based on you first 2 cards) and the dealer was busting every other hand also which is nice – possibly the most beautiful sound in the english language is “dealer has too many”.

I’ve got a super satelite for the ladbrokes poker millions coming up soon, more on this in the next few days.



  1. I’ve never heard of that comedian, but I’ve always had a great time no matter what comedian I’ve gone to see. Sadly, I’ll be missing Lee Evans at my local theatre next weekend as I’ll be down in London & Milton Keynes, but I did see him the last time he came and he was great (although I’m sure the first couple of rows got covered in his sweat!).

  2. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Adiposity.
