Imaan Hadchiti is an Australian comedian and actor. Born in Mylor, South Australia, Hadchiti and his sister Rima Hadchiti are the only two known cases of "Rima Syndrome", a genetic condition causing small-stature yet retaining normal proportions. Hadchiti stands 107 cm (3 ft 6 in) tall,[1] and many of his comedy routines focus on the way people of normal stature react to him. Starting his stand-up career at the age of 15, he won Triple J's Class Clown comedy contest in 2005,[2] and has since performed on The NRL Footy Show, the Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.[1][3][4]

Hadchiti's first television role was a possum in the cult SBS series Wilfred.[4]

In January 2012, he joined the cast of the series 2 of Balls of Steel Australia where he stars as the "Short Tempered", reprising his comedic role.
