"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 compliments.” - 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

Hernandez MWR Community Program Director

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,
