BY STIFF AND KITSCH
Comedy. 25th – 29th Jan, 21:30, £12.
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 Grammy’s like Adele. You’ve all been there, that shattering realisation that you are not a multi award winning, global record breaking pop superstar – and not only that, but you’re also actually older than Adele.
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.

Stiff and Kitsch are the comedy union of Sally O’Leary and Rhiannon Neads. You may recognise them from several badly dubbed adverts from Europe and BBC Radio 4. Having met whilst studying at LAMDA they soon realised they had a lot in common – They were both in love with guys that didn’t love them back, hadn’t discovered haircuts to suit their face shape, and both regularly found themselves being cast as men. Teaming up under the musical direction James Taylor (not that one), who comes with a wealth of experience including ITV’s The Sound of Music Live, and the direction of Janine Harouni (Muriel Comedy) they finally put their distinguished classical training to good use in this irreverent revue.
