Barnhart’s stand up show consists of well written topical material and is delivered with an animated flair that keeps audiences of all ages howling with laughter and coming back for more. Audiences say that Barnhart has the wit of George Carlin with the delivery of Jim Carey making him funny on so many levels. Don’s hypnosis show uses the power of the subconscious mind to tap into his volunteer’s hidden talents, turning them into the stars of the evening in a show that is as empowering as it is entertaining.
Over the last year, Barnhart’s film career has really been gaining steam as he stars in the documentary, Finding The Funny with Brad Garret and Louie Anderson directed by comedian John Bizarre and plays a rather disgruntled, road weary and carefree comedian in the upcoming comedy film, Tribute To Fluffy directed by USC film graduate Micah Cyrus.
Don is also the author of Comedy 101, Creating The Life You Desire and is a contributing author on I Killed. He is a graduate of The Second City Conservatory in Los Angeles and is a certified hypnotist performing both a stand up and comedy hypnosis show. In his off time, Don is one of the most sought after comedy coaches in the industry, teaching stand up and improv at his Vegas based studio.
