Sally and Rhiannon are not Adele. In any possible way. But what did she ever achieve? Worldwide success, 8 Brits, 10 Grammys, an Academy Award and three double platinum selling albums. What have Sally and Rhiannon achieved? Two years of unemployment, a combined relationship history of one and a permanent shaving rash.
Adele Is Younger Than Us is the culmination of years of optimistic frustration wedged into an hour of musical stand-up. Watch as Sally and Rhiannon emerge from the cocoon of long and painful adolescence into the world of womanhood, only to realise they weren't Adele-like butterflies at all. They were moths.
Stiff and Kitsch will take you on a journey through the trials and tribulations of love, with all the heartbreak but none of the Grammys. Join them in their attempt to find a man, fall in love and Set Fire To The Rain*
*Disclaimer: They won’t be able to, they're not Adele.
ADELE IS YOUNGER THAN US
She's probably younger than you too, but even if she's not, she's certainly more successful.

STIFF & KITSCH: BY ALL
ACCOUNTS TWO NORMAL GIRLS*
*a real life quote from a real life reviewer.
After the devastating realisation that they were older than Adele - Sally and Rhiannon wrote their first show and headed to Edinburgh. They dreamed of lights, fame and glory. What they got was a month long hangover, an autograph request from a lady in a chip shop who thought Sally actually was Adele, and a five star review which deemed them ‘Two Normal Girls’. Wait a second! Sally did not get a full body wax to be normal. Rhiannon did not self-publish her memoir ‘Rhiannon Neads: I’m not normal’ to be normal. They did not spend three years at drama school, £40,000 and an unpleasant summer holiday learning the entire works of Shakespeare TO BE NORMAL.
Was it time to pack it all in and go back to their day jobs? They couldn’t - not after an unfortunate incident regarding a hangover, an unidentifiable pecan and a customer with a nut allergy. With nothing but a P45, all the time in the world and 750 left over ‘Adele’ posters (wrong size for the venue) there was only one thing for it; They would have to write their next hit. Prepare to be underwhelmed.
