Donny Vomit

August 27, 2008

So I meant to finish grouting our backsplash Monday night until I got distracted video-chatting with my brother for three and a half hours. Anyone that knows me knows how much I love my family, especially my siblings.

Let me introduce to you, my brother, Donny Vomit. He works as an entertainer at the Coney Island Sideshow. For a living he shoves nails into his head, eats and breathes fire, swallows swords, sets mousetraps off on his tongue, and so much more. He moved out to NYC 4 years ago and slowly worked his way up to becoming a minor celebrity. He’s been featured on ESPN during the hot dog eating contest, he’s made appearances on Miami Ink and is coming up on Girls Next Door (a show about Hugh Hefners girlfriends).

My parents are always googling him to see what he’s been up to. I just tried it out and found blogs of girls wanting to be Mrs. Donny Vomit, articles about the sideshow school he teaches, and then the random vomit photos that have nothing to do with Donny.

I love this photo. It compeletely captures his essence. The way he’s holding that glass is so him.

Here he is looking holy while doing the human blockhead.

This is what the human blockhead looks like from the inside.

Recently a reporter insinuated that this photo is fake. It isn’t.

This is where he works.

This is one of my favorite photos of him. It’s also the first photo I took on my Holga camera. This photo is Donny just as my brother.

So if you’re ever in NYC during the warmer season make your way out to Coney Island and say hi to Donny.
