John Dimes is an author, artist, singer, actor and award-winning comedian. He is best known as the Horror Host, Dr. Sarcofiguy, the first (and still only) African-American Horror Host. In addition to this, Dimes has written several novels, such as the graphic novel Tales of Home, the surreal thriller Coincidissonance and the mockumentary guidebook The White Corpse Hustle: A Guide for the Fledgeling Vampire, which has been favorably compared to the writings of Douglas Adams. This is the first of a planned trilogy. A young adult fantasy novel, The Rites of Pretending Tribe, was published in February 2007. Outside of his illustrations for his novels, John's artwork has been showcased in Washington, D.C. galleries.

Mr. Dimes began performing as a popular stand-up comedian, working alongside David Chapelle, Patton Oswalt and Wanda Sykes. He has appeared in several independent films, including the satire The Blair Bitch Project, (1999) and the documentaries The Wave (1996) and American Scary (2006). In 1995 John sang on the stage of the Apollo Theatre, and later that same year, Halloween 1995, his program, The Spooky Movie, debuted on Falls Church Community TV (formerly "Channel 38"), where it continues to run every Friday night. In 2006 "Sarcofiguy" made appearances on the new television program Monster Madhouse Live, and in October co-hosted The 2006 Spooky Movie Film Festival in Fairfax, Virginia with his good friend, and childhood idol, Count Gore de Vol, Washington-Baltimore's popular 1970s and 1980s horror host. Sarcofiguy is a regular contributor to The Count's weekly webprogram.
