Lay Z


A very unusual, unexpected & captivating Comic Musical Show.

Lay Z Gordon, the ex-pro basketball player, is an international entertainer, who writes, composes, sings, and plays the piano with a comic interpretation of life.   

The show is based on his strange, funny, and compelling life story.

While fascinating and improvising live - music and stand-up, LayZ enjoys the intimate connection with the audience.
The show is hilarious and emotionally moving. It meshes the heart and the soul into one.
