David Koechner

Media Title

You probably know comic-actor David Koechner as “that asshole” from most of the things you’ve seen him in—but as a sort of witty, weird, sad asshole. He’s played Champ Kind, the clueless Ron Burgundy-worshipping sports guy, in Anchorman; the pathetic idiot manager in Waiting; the funny firearm lobbyist in Thank You for Smoking, and the schmuck womanizer in NBC’s The Office. Later this year, he’s set to star as an obnoxious redneck in My Asshole Neighbor. Indeed, Koechner’s made a pretty good living at portraying characters you’d gladly beat with a club, and he’ll likely be doing so when he hits the Trocadero this Saturday for a stand-up set.

Quick story: Koechner’s a lifelong Kansas City Chiefs fan and was cheering for them on Twitter throughout their epic loss to the Indianapolis Colts over the weekend, in which the Andy Reid-coached team blew a 21-point lead at the half. After the loss, he tweeted, “Thanks (sic) you! Lots of heart! Nothing but love! Have a great offseason.” What he didn’t say: Experiencing epic losses is what it’s like having Reid as your coach. (Of course, we knew that already.)

Koechner’s Philly stop is part of his 12-city Together Again tour—timed with the successful release of his latest film, Anchorman 2: The Legend of Ron Burgundy—and he’ll be testing out some new material. / RANDY LOBASSO
