Anchorman's David Koechner
David Koechner's got one of those faces. An SNL vet and seasoned stand-up, Koechner and his recognizable mug have made appearances in more than 120 movies and television shows, including Thank You for Smoking and NBC's The Office (as foulmouthed bully Todd Packer). There's one role, however, that will probably get him interrupted in restaurants for the rest of his career: Champ Kind, the sportscaster for KVWN in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and its 2013 sequel.
In his energetic, bluster-filled live sets, Koechner busts out the razor-sharp timing that have made his film performances and YouTube channel so memorable. The "Together Again" tour—stopping off at nine cities and lots of gas stations—won't stop at jokes and stories about Koechner's life as a father of five. It'll also find him disappearing into the many characters he's developed, such as carnival huckster Gerald “T-Bones” Tibbons.
From the street, the Wilbur Theatre looks almost like it could be a stately old family home. In fact, the Colonial-style building was always a theater, but its exterior details were copied directly from Beacon Hill's Thomas Bailey Midrich House when it was built in 1914. Even in the elegant auditorium, there's a sense of homey intimacy. Seating nestles right up to the stage so audiences can feel every note produced by the musicians and hear the tiny gears turning behind comedians' foreheads as they improvise.
