Actor, writer and producer David Koechner grew up in Tipton, Mo. working for his father in the family’s turkey coop manufacturing business. He studied political science at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan, and then transferred to the University of Missouri. After college, Koechner moved to Chicago, where he studied improvisation at the IO (formerly the ImprovOlympic) with Del Close and Charna Halpern. He went on to become an ensemble member of Second City Theater Northwest.
From there, Koechner spent one season in the cast of “Saturday Night Live” before moving to Los Angeles and landing guest appearances on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Reno 911” and a recurring role on “Still Standing.” He co-starred in indie films such as “Dill Scallion,” “Wakin’ Up in Reno,” “Dropping Out” and “Run Ronnie Run” while also turning solid performances in studio comedies such as “Out Cold,” “My Boss' Daughter” and “A Guy Thing.” Koechner, along with Dave “Gruber” Allen, developed and performed The Naked Trucker & T-Bones Show on stage at Club Largo in Los Angeles. The show later became a Comedy Central series.
Koechner’s first major film break came when he was cast as Champ Kind in “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” Since then, Koechner has been seen in a variety of studio and independent films such as “Daltry Calhoun” and “The Dukes of Hazzard” with Johnny Knoxville, “The 40 Year Old Virgin,” “Waiting,” “Yours, Mine and Ours,” “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Snakes on a Plane,” “Let’s Go To Prison,” “Semi-Pro,” “Get Smart,” “My One and Only,” “The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard,” “Extract,” “Final Destination 5,” “Small Apartments,” “Piranha 3DD,” “Paul,” the animated feature “Barnyard,” and the critically acclaimed “Thank You for Smoking” opposite Aaron Eckhart and Maria Bello.

Koechner recently reprised his popular role as Champ Kind for the upcoming “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” sequel with Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, which is set to hit theaters in December. He is receiving rave reviews for his role in the dark, twisted and film festival award-winning thriller “Cheap Thrills;” it will be in theaters early 2014.
