Barnhart laughing it up with Gino Michellini and Brad Garrett










Don Barnhart is the only Las Vegas Headliner that has both a stand up and hypnosis show. 


Catch Don performing his stand up nightly at Jokesters Comedy Club at The D Hotel in Las Vegas, NV when he's not on tour. 


Named “Best Bet” in Vegas, Barnhart headlines cruise ships, comedy clubs, military shows, corporate shows, colleges, high schools, fairs and recovery shows, Barnhart show is setting record attendance numbers making him one of the top headliners working today.


Over the last year, Barnhart’s film career has really been gaining steam as he finishing up production on the cannabis comedy documentary Reefer Rendum and is in preproduction on the new comedy film, The Freeloader both written by and starring Barnhart.  Don also plays a rather disgruntled, road weary and carefree comedian in the upcoming comedy film, Tribute To Fluffy and stars in the documentary, Finding The Funny with Brad Garret, Louie Anderson and Wendy Liebman.  Barnhart also plays the psychotic killer in the new web series, Max Justice.


Don was one of the featured headliners at the 2014 Laughlin Comedy Festival alongside Larry The Cable Guy, Dana Carvey and Maryellen Hooper.  Since his first USO tour back in 1992, Barnhart has been performing and producing comedy shows for the troops around the world bringing both celebrities and the next generation of comedy superstars to the men and women serving in the armed forces.  He just finished a tour of the Middle East and is headling out again later this year.


Don is also the author of the new book on stand up, Finding Your Funny as well as Creating The Life You Desire and he is a contributing author on I Killed:  True Stories From The Road by America’s Funniest Comedians.  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, The Las Vegas Comedy Institute. 


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. 


Besides being a regular headliner on the Las Vegas strip, Don Barnhart is a favorite performer for many of the top corporate events around the world including The World President’s Organization, AFLAC, AA/NA, DARE and many more.  He has been seen on almost every major comedy show and was hand picked for The Ice House's 50th Anniversary All Star TV Special. 


In 2014, Barnhart was the Grand Prize Winner in the Talent Call Comedy Contest as well as the Winner of the 2012 Improv/Levity Entertainment’s Talenthouse Comedy Competition.  In 2007, Don was the Grand Champion in The American Idol Underground Comedy Contest and has been seen on MTV, Star Search, and Evening At The Improv and has been featured on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC.  Barnhart is a Bob and Tom Show favorite and his comedy CD, I’m Not Just Eye Candy, can be heard frequently on the comedy channels on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio.
