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. « less
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, Last Comic Standing and American Idol mixed together. Audience members have the option to volunteer or sit back and watch. The show is family friendly and rated PG 13. From 21-101, you're sure to have a great time.
Barnhart is one of the very few hypnotism acts that are 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.
