Our Shows

The Newcomers are extremely versatile and are happy to customize a show for any event on any scale. 

Here are the three most popular show that we do:

The Newcomers  |  I Remember Benny Hill  |  Viva Las Vegas

 


1.   The Newcomers

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 "Benny Hill".
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 mention.
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 extraordinaire.
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 MIRROR.
