John Kassir has had a long and successful career. He has worked steadily for over 20 years as an actor, voice actor and comedian. While he is probably best known for being the voice of The Crypt Keeper on HBO's Tales From the Crypt, he first got national exposure in 1985 on Star Search, where he defeated Sinbad for best stand-up comic.
I met Ksssir at a previous Days of the Dead, but spent more time with him at the recent DotD last month. Kassir delighted fans all weekend. You never knew when that Crypt Keeper fellow would join the conversation. He was a great celebrity guest and a really cool guy.
At the end of the weekend, Kassir was kind enough to give us a Johngy's Beat promo. Of course, the Crypt Keeper was part of the fun.
Thank you John and thank you to Days of the Dead for another great convention. The next Days is in Atlanta on January 25-27. Check DaysoftheDead.com for more info.
