Kassir, who is of Syrian descent, was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and was previously married to actress Julie Benz from May 1998 to December 2007. They have both done voice-overs in the Xbox game Halo 2.
During Ed McMahon's original Star Search, Kassir beat Rosie O'Donnell and Sinbad in the talent competition, winning the $100,000 grand prize.
Kassir is perhaps best known for voicing the Crypt Keeper on the hit HBO show Tales from the Crypt. He played the Bulgarian kicker, Zagreb Shkenusky, for seven years in the HBO comedy series 1st & Ten, about a fictional football team.
As a standup comic, he has opened for the likes of Lou Rawls, Tom Jones, The Temptations, Bobby Vinton, Richard Belzer, Harry Blackstone Jr., and The Four Tops on their TNT tour, among others. Kassir has also appeared on stage performing improvisation with Robin Williams, though Williams did not realize this was happening.
Kassir also has a number of theater credits to his name. He originated the role of Kenny in Three Guys Naked From The Waist Down, for which he was nominated for both a Drama Desk and an Outer Critics Circle award, and also originated the role of Ralph in the musical Reefer Madness, on stage and in the film version.
