Daniel grew up in a Jewish-atheist household. In 2004, he found out he had stage-four testicular cancer and went searching for God... Any God. Enter Lance Armstrong.
Reflecting on Daniel's real life experiences, The Orchid and the Crow is a solo performance; part storytelling, part cabaret, part theatre, featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Die Roten Punkte.

“Daniel Tobias has condensed his entire life into a smart and scintillating 75 minute variety show – the Orchid and the Crow is wise, generous, and blackly funny and it’s constantly in the rim of appalling taste. If we gave stars – this would have a fistful” The Australian
