Three things tipped me off to this being a character:
1) the general tone and cadence of the protagonist. Too overtly literal, too expository. Trying to get a lot of backstory out of the way at once.
2) The screenplay is obviously a copy and paste of James Joyce's Ulysses. Look carefully at the text.
3) The clear resemblance to Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis.
It's super easy to dismiss this guy as just a character if you've only seen a handful of 5 min clips...
What gives me pause is that this "character" has produced several hundred hours of similar content. There's been at least one instance where he's freaked out, deleted all his youtube videos, and quit the internet (ala CWC). He's also done an impressive number of livestreams, which he typically (but not always) doesn't record.
My working suspicion is that he started out as not-an-act, and someone at some point explained to him why he was getting trolled and why people found it amusing, and it actually sunk in. Stuff from ~1 year ago till now seems way, way more self aware than before.
I guess what I'm saying is that if this guy is pure troll, it's way more impressive/interesting than if he's just some troubled weirdo... because holy shit dedication.
How can this guy be real with his marker pen Semper Fi written on a knife? Yet how can he be fake if he has done hundreds of hours of this shit for next to no-one to watch?

Well, I had to check out at 0:06, because I'm an honest guy.
