Anchorman’s David Koechner is making his Australian stand-up debut his July

Actor David Koechner is perhaps best known as Champ King from Anchorman and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues; or maybe as Todd Packer from The Office. But did you know he’s also an accomplished stand up performer?

Despite his fairly prodigious filmography, Koechner has at least 60 films under his belt, and a pretty busy career in television, Koechner has managed to tour his stand-up show across America multiple times to sold out audiences, and has been earning some rave reviews for his quirky performances.

And now Australian audiences will soon be able to find out for themselves, as Koechner heads down to Australia in July for his debut stand-up tour. A tour which will see him play to audiences across the country.

The tour presented by Frontier Touring goes on sale on Tuesday 26th April; however Frontier members can get their tickets early when they go on pre-sale tomorrow. For more information on the presale and to purchase tickets visit HERE

In celebration of the announcement of the tour we dug back into our archives to bring you this interview with did with Koechner back in 2013 at the Australian premiere of Anchorman 2.
