He has been called "absurdly articulate" by his friend Andrew King and "a disappointment to humanity" by his mother. In his spare time Donny Townsend likes to wear pants, and other clothes. He eats often and sleeps a minimum of ten hours every day. He has never had a job although he has featured for Doug Stanhope.
