Seems like Don Barnhart Entertainment hit the jackpot when relocating to Las Vegas from Los Angeles and 2010 is looking to been an even better year for the independent production company.
DBE is currently in production on “The Ice House 50th Anniversary Comedy Special” on August 26th, 2010 featuring the comedy club’s top pick of comedians to look out for. Barnhart, who will direct the show has also been selected to perform.
Don Barnhart is fast becoming one of the top comedians working today. He is an accomplished actor, certified hypnotist, published author and filmmaker with numerous television and film credits and is a favorite headliner at the top comedy clubs across the country.
Don combines well written, topical material and delivers it with a fast paced, high energy and animated improvisational flair that keeps audiences of all ages howling with laughter and coming back for more. Audiences say that Barnhart reminds them of a young George Carlin with the energy and characters of Robin Williams making Don funny on so many different levels.
Don Barnhart Entertainment is currently working on several new comedy projects. The first one being “Get Off My Bus”. This new reality based TV show that truly leaves the last comic standing. 20 comics get on a bus in NY and head to Las Vegas. They stop at comedy clubs across the country to do sets and get voted off along the way. Think, “Last Comic Standing” meets “Survivor”. The last remaining comic gets to shoot his/her full Cable Special, “Live from Las Vegas”. DBE is currently in negotiations to shoot the show at the new Brad Garrett Comedy Club in Las Vegas, NV
In 2009, DBE released it’s first feature film “China Dolls” world wide and on DVD long with their television series, “The Freedom of Speech Comedy Show” and are they are currently in pre-production on several new feaure films.

DBE is also in pre-production on the horror/comedy “Morgue” written by award-winning writer and author of the book “Pacify Me”, Chris Mancini. It is to be directed by Rondell Sheridan from “That’s So Raven” and “Corey In The House”.
We have a strong loyalty to all the great talent here in Las Vegas and wanted to show Hollywood what it’s missing”, said producer/director Don Barnhart Jr from a recent interview aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. He continued, “Most productions will hire their actors in LA or New York and then use Las Vegas talent for filler roles and background overlooking some truly great, talented and professional people that for a variety of reasons choose to make Las Vegas their home”.
