Don Barnhart - Comedy Hypnotist
Award-winning comedian, Second City Conservatory Alumni and certified hypnotist Don Barnhart has combined his comedy and improvisational skills to create one of the most unique, interactive and funniest comedy-hypnosis shows in the world.
The Don Barnhart Comedy Hypnosis Show delivers interactive, improvisational and sidesplitting comedy while simultaneously unlocking the unique mysteries of the human mind. It's a musical and fast-paced romp through volunteers' subconscious creative genius that keeps audiences on the edges of their seats. Akin to releasing the hidden talents of a dozen comedians onstage with Barnhart as the ringleader, each performance is kept clean and wholly unique.
Don Barnhart's Comedy Hypnosis Show is part stand up comedy, part improvisation, part hypnosis and a little bit of America’s Got Talent mixed together. Audience members have the option to volunteer or sit back and watch. The show is family friendly and rated PG 13. From 18-80, you're sure to have a great time.
Barnhart is one of the very few hypnotism acts that is family-friendly; Don takes the positive aspects of hypnotic trances for a spin, convincing his volunteers to be superstars and fitness models. In an industry dominated by embarrassing and shocking antics, the comedy brought out of our shared hopes and dreams is refreshing, honest and just plain funny.
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 are encouraged to attend.
Barnhart, who continues to perform his stand-up show in Las Vegas 8-10 weeks a year and was just nominated for the Las Vegas Review-Journal's 2010 "Best Comedian" award, was certified as a hypnotist by the Hypnosis Motivation Institute. HMI has earned the distinction of being America's first hypnotherapy training institution to become nationally accredited.
Barnhart has just published “The Power of Hypnosis” along with a series of motivational and self-improvement CDs. Don has been delighting audiences with his stage presence since he was a young child and is today a sought-after performer boasting local, regional and worldwide fame as an accomplished hypnotist and comedian.

"First of all, thank you again for two incredible nights.
Your comedy killed. Both nights. 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"...lol
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."
