Morecambe Fringe review by Sue Griffin

Allan Gray aka Gordon Zola and Eve Nortley, together as Chalk & Cheeze, performed a musical comedy. Allan a lyrically, rhythmic poet and Eve, a Brummie Bard, known for her racy poetry, are no strangers to the Spoken Word, scene. Tonight's cornucopia of mirth and madness, ranged from operatic mayhem to the 'Pensioner's Rap, including a tribute to Victoria Wood, in a raunchy, ' Tessco, Express, Blues. The show, sprinkled with political satire, had the audience, singing and clapping along, creating sixty minutes of fun.

On 17th February 2022, CHALK & CHEEZE - Gordon Zola's, Salford, Scally, & Brummie, Bard, Eve Nortley - debuted their smorgasbord of Mirth, Mischief & Mayhem, to an appreciative audience,  at the Talleyrand, Manchester.
