For years, the award winning comedian and hypnotist made Hawaii his first stop on his comedy tours averaging two to three weeks a year on the islands. At one point, Barnhart was trying to move to the islands full time. Don was in negotiations to purchase the Honolulu Comedy Club but had to pass as the movie industry was calling.
Barnhart recently wrote, directed and starred in the indie thriller, China Dolls and has made brief appearances in the movies Apollo 13, In The Army Now and Ocean's 13. Barnhart's wife, the exotic and beautiful Vietnamese actress and fitness model Linda Vu co-stars with Don in China Dolls and they are currently in pre-production on a comedy film entitled, "Freeloader". It's the story of a returning Veteran who ends up on the street and becomes the Robin Hood of the homeless.
Don Barnhart's Comedy Hypnosis Show is funny on so many different levels. "Don appeals to both locals and tourists", said local comedian Paul Ogata and Don got the nickname, "the crazy Haole" by locals and quickly became a regular fixture on the Islands during the late 80's and early 90's.
Local comedy star Andy Bumatai went to the mainland and first met Don in the 80's in Hermosa Beach, CA and saw that Don's spirit was truly Hawaiian. "Andy told me to get to the islands by any means necessary. Even if I had to swim." said, Barnhart. "Andy knew I would click with the Aloha spirit and vibe and he introduced me to so many great people here when I first visited. He brought me to the Perry and Price Show and they put me on just on Andy's recommendation".
In 2010, Don Barnhart received the "Bob Hope Comedy Award" for his continued service entertaining the troops stationed overseas and he won the 2007 Grand Prize in The American Idol Underground Comedy Contest.
Barnhart has been performing and producing comedy shows for the troops since 1992 and was the first comedy show into Afghanistan. He's been everywhere from Bosnia to Afghanistan. "When you reach a certain level of success, if you don't share it, then it dies with you," says Barnhart. "I think we all have a duty to give back. I'm blessed to be able to make a living doing what I love and I consider both an honor and a privilege to entertain our men and women serving in the military. I'm kinda like the water boy on the Super Bowl team".
What distinguishes Barnhart's success from other hypnosis shows is that Don is the only comedy hypnotist that is also an award-winning stand up comedian who continues to headline the top comedy clubs, colleges, cruise ships and corporate events across the country.
