David Koechner’s face may be better known than his name. His big break came when he played Champ Kind in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, but his foray into comedy was launched through the famous Second City Chicago troupe. His experience there led to a yearlong stint on Saturday Night Live, followed by supporting roles in such movies as Get Smart, Thank You for Smoking and Semi-Pro, and his recurring spot as the gleefully sexist Todd Packer on The Office.

His love for live performance has manifested itself in projects such as The Naked Trucker & T-Bones and Beer Shark Mice, both of which allow Koechner the freedom to develop new characters, sketches and songs like the ones he’s bringing to Utah. More of a one-man show than a stand-up routine, Koechner’s performance promises to bring an energy and versatility that is sure to leave audiences begging for more of this type of entertainment at Wiseguys.

David Koechner @ Wiseguys Comedy Café, 2194 W. 3500 South, West Valley City, 801- 463-2909, July 30-31, 8 & 10 p.m, $20. 18 and over. WiseguysComedy.com
