You may not know Don Barnhart by name but you should as he performs over 300 day a year on the road and much of that has been dedicated to entertaining our troops around the world. Don will be heading overseas for another series of military shows later this year with his Battle Comics – Laughter For The Troops world tour.
Barnhart is the author of Creating The Life You Desire, Freeloader and is a contributing author on I Killed: True Stories from the Road From America’s Funniest Comedians.
Over the last year, Barnhart’s film career has really been gaining steam as he stars in the documentary, Finding The Funny with Brad Garret and Louie Anderson and plays a rather disgruntled, road weary and carefree comedian in the upcoming comedy film, Tribute To Fluffy. Don can also be seen playing a psychotic mad man in the new web series Max Justice.
Earlier this year, Barnhart wrapped production on the cannabis comedy Reefer Rendum and is currently in preproduction on the new comedy film, The Freeloader, which he wrote and stars in. The movie will begin shooting in Las Vegas at the end of 2015 and is based on Barnhart’s book of the same name. Barnhart’s character, a returning Vet, becomes the Robin Hood of the Homeless as he finds his way back into society. "I have to get in shape for the film", said Barnhart in a recent interview. He continued, "And I mean military shape. My wife is thrilled that I may actually have a six pac on my belly and not in the fridge."
