Saying they were banished from Hobbiton, Middle-Earth, for flouting the food and beverage rules, the pair bring the hobbit world to life in a 50-minute show.

‘We have been performing as a comedy duo since last September, having reconnected after an interval of 21 years,’ Banksia Grove resident Susi said.

‘Our show is a story about two banished hobbits, told in song, skit and ‘feetering’ big hairy feet.

‘When we discovered we were both hobbits and addicted to merry song and onesies, we felt we had to share our joy with the people of Perth, Earth.

‘Our show will appeal to hobbits, short people, those with an inferiority complex, basically everyone except the under-15s.’

Hairy Halflings opens at the Cheeky Sparrow, Murray Street, on Saturday, February 1 at 9pm.

The season runs from February 4 to 6, at 8pm. Tickets are $20, from fringeworld.com.au
