Las Vegas Based Comedian Don Barnhart Releases Clean Family-Friendly Comedy Special

With over 3 million active followers, Dry Bar Comedy releases Las Vegas Resident Headliner Don Barnhart's "Spinal Disintegration of Man" Comedy Special to eager anticipation proving that clean comedy can be hysterically funny.

LAS VEGAS - July 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Joining season 4 of Dry Bar Comedy from Vid Angel Productions is comedian Don Barnhart in his first comedy special "The Spinal Disintegration of Man".  Although Barnhart performs nightly in Las Vegas and lets loose at Jokesters Comedy Club inside The D Hotel & Casino, Barnhart's Dry Bar special proves that you can be hysterically funny while being both clean and family-friendly.

"Don Barnhart is hysterically funny, delivering his well-written topical material with an animated and improvisational flair that's not to be missed.  He is a refreshing voice in the standup genre, mixing a blend of sharp, topical insights about our life and the world around us, pushing the boundaries of PC culture without being overtly offensive.  Barnhart has often been compared to the sharp, witty insights of George Carlin with the animated expressions of Jim Carrey."

Don Barnhart, a 30-year veteran of standup comedy, has been cracking audiences up at the top comedy clubs, colleges and corporate events around the world performing in almost as many countries as states as well as headlining shows for the cruise industry on Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Carnival.

Since 1992, Don Barnhart has also had the honor and privilege of entertaining the troops around the world for USO, MWR, DOD, and Armed Forces Entertainment.   Although Barnhart hasn't personally toured with Gary Sinise and The Lt. Dan Band they did work together on the film Apollo 13 and talked about the importance of using their talents to do something good in the world.

Barnhart went on and founded Battle Comics to help bring even more comedy entertainment to those serving overseas and is the inspiration and one of the stars of I AM BATTLE COMIC showcasing the importance of bringing entertainment to war zones.  The movie includes candid interviews with George Lopez, Dave Attell and George Wallace as well as cameos and clips with comedy legends Bob Hope & Robin Williams.

Don is one of the only entertainers that stars in two different Las Vegas residencies performing his standup comedy at Jokesters Comedy Club inside The D Hotel & Casino on Fremont Street seven nights a week at 10:30pm as well as performing his comedy hypnosis show in Hypnomania at The Downtown Grand Wed – Sun at 7:00PM.

Barnhart and his wife Linda Vu are the owners of Jokesters Comedy Club which was named 2018's Best of Las Vegas Comedy Club and Barnhart produces, directs and stars in Jokesters TV, the syndicated late-night comedy show seen on The CW, Action Channel and Amazon Prime.

Barnhart's love for the military is evident as both of his shows offer ½ general admission to veterans and active service members as well as first responders and more often than not, Don will post complimentary tickets to his shows on Vet Tix.

"Having a residency in Las Vegas has been a dream of mine for years", said Barnhart in a recent interview.  "It's allowed me the freedom to continue growing as a comedian and truly let loose and not hold back, finding the absurd and funny in our day to day life."  The comedian and hypnotist predominantly works clean but added that he's not afraid to push the boundaries stating, "Dirty jokes are like Jalapenos.  Most people don't mind one or two but nobody wants a Jalapeno milkshake.  The main thing is that it's got to be funny."

Barnhart truly knows his craft.  He is the author of the Amazon Best Seller, Finding Your Funny, exploring the art, science and business of standup comedy.  With a humorous and heartfelt forward by Comedy Legend George Wallace, Finding Your Funny goes beyond Barnhart's own 25-year journey and shares the brutal, often overlooked experience and advice of other comedians, entertainers, managers, agents and bookers. The book includes a no holds barred assessment about what clubs, venues and agents are actually looking for as well as many of the things you need to do and avoid if you're looking into making comedy a career.

Don's newest book, Rock Bottom is the story of Returning Veteran Guy Derek who comes home from the war only to find out his wife has left him, his house is foreclosed and ends up homeless. Using his wit and humor, Guy finds his way back becoming the Robin Hood of the disenfranchised.  The book is getting great reviews and is being turned into a feature film.

Barnhart was first exposed to comedy while hanging out on the Paramount Studio lot watching his father direct Mork & Mindy learning about improv from Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters. "It blew my mind that you could make a living making people laugh.  As a kid, I was exposed to so much great humor and the comedy boom was just beginning to get steam.  I loved it so much that even though I was underage, I convinced my dad to sneak me in to see Richard Pryor and so many more."

Upon graduation from high school, Barnhart got a job at the prestigious Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach and by the time he was 20 he became the house emcee, manager and talent coordinator working with and learning from Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, Louie Anderson, Dennis Miller, David Spade and so many more.

Barnhart has been seen on MTV, Star Search, and Evening At The Improv and has been featured on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC.  He is a Bob and Tom Show favorite and his comedy CD, I'm Not Just Eye Candy can be heard frequently on the comedy channels on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio.  In 2015, Don was the grand prize winner in the Levity Entertainment/Improv Comedy Contest and was the Grand Prize winner in the 2008 American Idol Underground Comedy Contest.

Don is also a Second City Conservatory Graduate and in his off time teaches stand up, improv and comedy writing at The Las Vegas Comedy Institute.

Don Barnhart's "The Spinal Disintegration of Man" Comedy Special is available now on Dry Bar and you can see him let loose in the uncensored version nightly at 10:30PM at Jokesters Comedy Club in Las Vegas.

BRIGHTON, England — A stoppage-time own goal handed Brighton a dramatic 3-2 comeback English Premier League win over Everton, which had been leading with 10 minutes to go on Saturday.

Liverpool drops first points in 1-1 draw at Man United

Nov 22, 2019

MANCHESTER, England — Dropping points doesn't seem so frustrating this time for Manchester United. Even against Liverpool. While holding on to inflict Liverpool's first loss of the season was beyond this patched-up United squad, a 1-1 draw still ended the Premier League leader's perfect start on Sunday. It's a sign of United's fall from grace that frustrating its fiercest rival represents progress in the midst of the team's worst start for three decades. Adam Lallana's 85th minute tap-in for Liverpool, canceling out Marcus Rashford's first-half opener, meant United has now lost eight points from winning positions this campaign. But United...

Nov 22, 2019

LONDON — Tottenham's struggles in the Premier League showed no signs of ending as Spurs needed a late equalizer just to earn a 1-1 home draw against last-place Watford on Saturday. The debate around VAR will likely go on as well, after the video-replay system sparked more confusion and controversy on day when it had a direct impact on three games. Dele Alli's late equalizer for Tottenham was allowed to stand after a VAR check, despite the midfielder seemingly using his arm to control the ball before slotting home in the 86th minute. In addition, the big screens at Tottenham...

Arsenal 3rd in EPL as David Luiz scores 1st goal for Gunners

Nov 22, 2019

LONDON — David Luiz scored his first goal for Arsenal in a 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday which lifted Unai Emery's side up to third in the Premier League. Luiz headed home off a corner from Nicolas Pepe with only nine minutes gone. It turned out to be the only goal of a game that lacked both chances and quality as the Cherries managed to keep in-form Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the periphery. Arsenal has still lost just once this season in the league and now sits one point behind defending champions Manchester City. Aubameyang, crucial to Arsenal...
