The Newcomers are
extremely versatile and are happy to customize a show for any event on
Here are the three most
popular show that we do:
Remember Benny Hill |
Viva Las Vegas
The Newcomers are
a musical comedy group, made up of Robyn and Ian Hillis and keyboard
player Mike Dunne. The sing and perform comedic impersonations. It's
caricatures - all tongue- in-cheek. AN
EVENING OF MUSIC, COMEDY & IMPERSONATIONS.
Ian and Robyn are famous for their comic impressions of some of the
greats of the entertainment world including tributes, as duos, to
Shania Twain and Elvis, Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton, Abba, Tina
Turner and Roy Orbison, Sonny and Cher and Edith and Archie Bunker.
As a solo Ian does his impressions of two wildly opposite characters -
laid back Texan "Willie Nelson" and Britain's saucy devil, womanizer
CHARLES MCGREGOR - THE DURHAM SUN.
The husband and wife team of Ian and Robyn Hillis are multi-talented
with their vocals, comedy and famous impressions too numerous to
FRANK KNIGHT - THE SCARBOROUGH MIRROR.
Ian Hillis's impression of "Benny Hill" and the "Irish Rovers" is
worth the admission price alone.
ROUND AND ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT - TORONTO.
This is the best show by far, that you will ever see outside of the
City of Las Vegas itself.
RANGERS CLUB, OSHAWA.
Any show "Hello Vegas" included, spins off an audience favorite - a
personality who wins a sort of unspoken (but well applauded) MVP
Award. In this case, that person is Irishman Ian Hillis of the comedy
team "The Newcomers".
CORYDON IRELAND - NIAGARA GAZETTE.
An evening out becomes a PARTY with The Newcomers.
THE MONTREAL GAZETTE.
Robyn's impression of Dolly Parton, Tina Turner and Cher are nothing
less than stunning.
THE SINGLES VOICE REVIEW, TORONTO.
Backed by the highly talented, unsung hero Michael Dunne - keyboardist
With his section of sounds he was at times a symphony orchestra, a
Dixieland band, or a country and western group, and he was right there
backing up the performers from beginning to end.
THE RECORD - CONESTOGO.
It can only be because of the vagaries and quirks of the entertainment
industry that Ian Hillis has slipped through the cracks and not become
a major star, for he has everything that it takes to become one.
HARRY CURRIE - THE RECORD - CONESTOGO
Ian Hillis does a marvelous standup routine - his imitation of Robin
Gibb (of Bee Gee fame) is something to be seen. Wife Robyn is the
perfect straight-man for Ian's often off-colour jokes. Her impression
of Edith Bunker is dead on.
IDA BAAN - THEATRE SECTION - SCARBOROUGH
