An actor, stand-up comedian, writer and musician, David Koechner is known and loved for playing goofy characters on the big screen. After studying at Chicago's Improv Olympic and Second City Theatre, Koechner made a name for himself in the hit Will Ferrell comedies "Anchorman" (2004) and "Talladega Nights" (2006). He made his mark on the small screen as well in the recurring role of Todd Packer, the crass, vulgar and mean-spirited "best friend" of Michael Scott in the critically acclaimed sitcom, "The Office" (2005). Alongside longtime friend David "Gruber" Allen, Koechner formed half of the patriotic redneck musical duo The Naked Trucker and T-Bones, hitting the road with a musical comedy act that proved his comedic skills were not limited to on-screen characters.
