Don Barnhart's love of comedy started at an early age. As the son of television director, Barnhart hung out at the studios in Los Angeles watching his dad direct Mork & Mindy, Full House and even Saved By The Bell and knew making people laugh was his calling.
Getting a job as a doorman right out of high school at The Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, CA. Don spent every chance he could learning the art, craft, and business of comedy and by the time he was 20, Barnhart was the House MC, Talent Coordinator and Night Manager booking and opening for such comedy superstars as Seinfeld, Leno, Dennis Miller, Jim Carrey, David Spade, George Wallace, Robin Williams and so many more. In 1987, Don left his job to pursue his own career of standup and has never looked back.
And now, critics are raving, "Don Barnhart is hysterically funny, delivering well-written topical material with an improvisation flair that's not to be missed. Don pushes the boundaries of "Cancel Culture" using common sense without being overtly offensive. He's a refreshing voice in comedy with the clever, witty insights of George Carlin and the facial expressions of Jim Carrey."
Don Barnhart has two residencies in Las Vegas with his Standup Comedy and Hypnomania Comedy Hypnosis Show. Since 1992, Barnhart has produced comedy shows entertaining the troops stationed around the world with Battle Comics, USO, and Armed Forces Entertainment. He is the inspiration and featured in the documentary, I Am Battle Comic, stars in Finding The Funny with Brad Garrett and Louie Anderson and has been seen on MTV, Comedy Central, NBC, and FOX. He is a Bob and Tom Show favorite and can be heard regularly on Sirius/XM.
The award-winning comedian is also a certified hypnotist and one of the top inspirational, motivational and keynote speakers and performs an entirely separate comedy hypnosis show. He is the founder of The Las Vegas Comedy Institute and in his free time, teaches stand up, improv and comedy writing.
Don's new book, Finding Your Funny is a Best Seller on Amazon. With a humorous and heartfelt forward by Comedy Legend George Wallace, Finding Your Funny goes beyond Barnhart's own 35+ year journey and shares the brutal, often overlooked experience and advice of other comedians, entertainers, managers, agents and bookers.
