HONOLULU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - Don Barnhart is an award-winning comedian as well as a talented writer, director and actor. His extensive credits include numerous TV and film appearances while averaging over 250 days a year on the road headlining the top comedy clubs, colleges and cruise ships around the world.
He is currently at work on a one man show based on his successful stand up comedy show, "The DeEvolution of Man" and is prepping his second feature film, "Freeloader" a comedy which he wrote, directs and stars in. Barnhart is also the creator and host of the new syndicated television series, "The Freedom of Speech Comedy Show".
Barnhart was first introduced to comedy while hanging out on the sets where his father was directing Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters on "Mork and Mindy". Out of high school and looking for a job, Don went down to the world famous Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach where he became a doorman, then manager, talent coordinator and house emcee. Barnhart perfected his comedy skills as the opening act for such comedy legends as Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Robin Williams, Dennis Miller, Jim Carrey, Judd Apatow, Drew Carey, Dana Carvey, Louie Anderson, George Wallace, Tim Allen and many more. Seeing the natural talent in Don, these stars encouraged him to take his act on the road and in 1987 Don left his duties to pursue stand up full time and he's worked non-stop ever since.
Don is currently writing, producing and directing several projects but always makes room for his tour dates.
