Barnhart backstage with Kivi Rogers and Dave Attel










Here are just a few of the many articles, press and reviews of Don Barnhart...

"Thanks for an amazing show!  You were such a hit and this was the best award gala the state has ever had! 

My team doen't impress easily either!"  - Aflac of Southern Nevada

"Hilarious" - NY Times, "One of the best" - LA Times, "This guy's funny" - Howard Stern, "Best bet!" - Las Vegas RJ

"This was the best show we've ever had!" - Drew Blease - Blease Financial Services

"Don did a great job. His interaction with the crowd was perfect. We had numerous folks come up afterwards talking about how much they enjoyed the show. We would highly recommend him to other groups." - Thanks again. Lance Shillingburg, TMTA - Austin, TX

"The accolades we continue to receive from the installations you visited are testimony to your commitment and dedication to ensure our troops' morale remain high by providing quality entertainment to our uniformed service members overseas. Without a doubt, your performance has made a lasting impression on the troops and installation." - Edward F. Shock, Col, USAF Chief, Armed Forces Entertainment

"Thank you so much. I cannot count how many times people have told me how much they laughed! By the way the owner of the golf course and lots of other things has asked me for your contact info, he would like to book you for a couple things he has coming that is awesome!" - Montisa Phelan Lopez, Executive Director, Foundation & Public Affairs - Arroyo Grande Community Hospital - Arroyo Grande, CA

"Don was a great asset to our AFE and Navy Entertainment program. We look forward to return trips with his groups. Please see my attached comments as agreed upon with my staff who enjoyed working with Don. He is a very good performer, a compassionate and flexible individual, and a patriot for the troops. They even did a show on the deck of the sub last week." Thomas L. Linscott, MWR Director - Bahrain

"What a night! Don Barnhart was awesome. His Comedy and Hypnosis Show broke all of our comedy records!!!! PACKED!!!" - Jack Didley's Comedy Club - Kennewick, WA

"The Don Barnhart Comedy & Hypnosis Show is the only running Vegas Hypnosis Show that is family friendly. Barnhart takes the positive aspects of hypnotic trances for a spin. In an industry dominated by embarrassing and shocking antics, the comedy brought out of our shared hopes and dreams is refreshing and honest. Don's twenty years of comedy club experience are evident, as well as his Second City improv skills and his self-improvement hypnotic abilities. Everything comes together in a show that puts the audience on center stage, inhibitions gone, ready to perform like they never have before. Skeptics encouraged to attend." - LasVegas.Net

"Thanks Don. Great Show!" - Sam Fox, VP Battery Alliance, Inc

“Everyone really enjoyed the show, we are still getting complements.” - James A Shipp, MWR Programs NSA Souda Bay, Crete, Greece

"Your comedy killed. The hypnosis show was incredible. My friend was the girl in the center with red boots. In talking with her afterwards, she told us how it felt and how she felt. And how the hundred dollar bills you gave them were "really sparkly" We were both somewhat cynical about "those kind of shows" - playing along, plants from the audience, etc. Your show and seeing it happen to a friend of ours convinced us! And again, thank you for sharing your shows with us." - Sincerely, Dave Sisco, Accent Promotions & Media - Las Vegas, NV

"What happens when you combine an Award-Winning Comedian, a Second City Trained Improv Actor and Certified Hypnotist? You get America’s funniest comedy hypnotist! For over 25 years, Don Barnhart has been practicing hypnosis and performing stand up comedy and it was only a few years ago that Don completed his hypnosis certification training and added this to his already successful stand up comedy show. Combining improv, stand up and hypnosis is a unique take on the usual stage hypnosis show. Don invites volunteers to share the stage and spotlight with him by tapping into their creative potential and talents and not subjecting them to the usual ridicule and embarrassment seen in other hypnotic shows. It’s like having a stage full of comedic entertainers with Barnhart serving as ringleader." - Hypnosis Monthly Magazine

Simply OUTSTANDING! Thank you for your dedication to duty on behalf of the men and women in uniform. It is people like you and Jeff Capri that adds quality to life for our military community. You both are truly good people and outstanding patriots to our country. God bless you both. Again, thank you for your support and sincere dedication to our military. - Mr. Joe V. Hernandez MWR Community Program Director

"Due to mission requirements and other unforeseen events, Don was always available to adjust the schedules and locations of shows. He did show on the deck of a submarine and in our clubs for the crews of the USS Bataan, USS Fort McHenry and USS Topeka along the community members of the NSA Bahrain". - Mario E. Farrula, MWR Deployed Forces Support - NSA Bahrain

"One of our top performers" - Rich Davis, Comics On Duty World Tours

"Best emerging artist!" - American Idol Underground

"One of the top 100 comedians to see.” - Entertainment Business Journal

“You are now the new "A" team for the Comedy tours! You are the best!!!!!” - Betty Naylor, USO Comedy Break Tour Producer

“Everyone was totally delighted with the great show and everyone wants more comedy shows of this calibar.” - Joe Mennitt, MWR Med Coordinator

“By far the best comedy tour ever!" - Victoria Jones, Entertainment Coordinator Naval Air Station Sigonella

“Definitely sit-com material" - Howard Storm, T.V. Director

"A pleasure to work with! " - USO Celebrity Entertainment

“Absolutely fantastic!” - Mark – Seranade Cruise Director Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines

“Amazing” - Paul - Cruise Director Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines

“Outstanding” - Kieron - Cruise Director Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines

“Great job!” – Gio - Cruise Director Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines

"His show was brilliant" - Casey - Cruise Director Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines

"Using Don CD's as an influence. I have lost 35 pounds. Feels Great!!" - Crissy R.

"Your CD's have helped me immensely!" - D. Williams

Dear Don,
Because of you, I can't fall asleep now without being hum-drummed and sing-songed to sleep by the sultry sounds of your voice. How dare you give me a good night's sleep, which makes me wake up feeling refreshed every single day! Now I "wake up full of awesome" every morning because of your hypnotherapy. The morning perkiness is killing my friends.

And it's your fault that I've lost weight, much to my man-friend's chagrin. He asked me, "You're not going to be all bony and pointy the next time I see you, right?" It's going to be really awkward when he gets back from where he's stationed, and it's time to go to sleep, I roll over and put you on. How do I explain to a man that I care about that I'm having an affair with my iPod so I can fall asleep relaxed and in a state that helps me get healthy?

I don't know where you get off on selling a product that actually works.

Feeling content, happy, and healthy in California,
