What font does Randall use for his text...is it written by hand or is there a font he uses?

It is his handwriting. Or at least a font based on his handwriting. Don't know his process. In the "Make xkcd slightly worse" thread, there have been some fonts posted based on the comic. Try this:

Okay, I have reuploaded it. A copy of the TTF font is available here (original post), and the C++ script here (original post).

He uses a combination of this and something like this or this.

I believe the xkcdsucks blog provides a font.
