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.
Hosting the evening's set, the historic Gramercy Theatre first opened its doors in 1937 and spent some 60 years as a movie palace and art house. Now wedged between two skyscrapers, it still retains some art-deco columns and flourishes striped into its façade. Inside, an intimate main room shares space with the eclectic Samsara Lounge where persian rugs and funky wall art imbue audiences with a rock 'n' roll spirit and inspire the spontaneous formation of nomadic tribes.
