Award-Winning Comedian Don Barnhart is currently in preproduction on the new comedy film, The Freeloader, which he wrote and stars in. The movie is set to begin shooting in Las Vegas in 2015 and is based on Barnhart’s 3rd book of the same name. The Freeloader novel was inspired by Don’s numerous comedy tours for the troops and is the story of returning Veteran Guy Derek. After losing his wife, house and dog, Guy hits rock bottom and in order to find his way back becomes the Robin Hood of The Homeless.
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.
The Las Vegas Review/Journal recently named Don Barnhart’s comedy show one of their “Best Bets” and he just finished headlining the 2014 Laughlin Comedy Festival alongside Larry The Cable Guy, Dana Carvey and Maryellen Hooper.

Barnhart’s recent tours for the troops include comedy legend, George Wallace and American Idol Finalist James Durbin.
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.
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.
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 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.
