Sir John HargraveSir John Hargrave, the "King of Dot-Comedy," is the editor-in-chief of ZUG (, the world's oldest humor Web site. His comedy work has been featured in the New York Times, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, the Boston Globe, and BusinessWeek. He has made appearances on Comedy Central, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, MSNBC, TechTV, and the BBC. He is a frequent speaker at technology conferences and wacky morning radio shows across the nation.

From 1999-2001, he hosted the award-winning technology comedy show Computer Stew, which the Boston Globe called "original and inspired," and Entertainment Weekly praised as "innovative." Sir John also served as executive producer for nearly 400 episodes of the show.

In February 2007, Citadel Press will publish his first book, PRANK THE MONKEY. A collection of his greatest pranks, the book also features hilarious new stunts that are more ambitious than any attempted before. In PRANK THE MONKEY, Sir John takes on society's biggest and most deserving targets - from Starbucks to spammers, from Madonna to Charles Manson - proving that one person still can make a monkey out of The Man.

He lives in Boston with his wife and two sons, Isaac and Rocket.
