Biography


Persistently built his way to make a satisfying transition from small to big screen feature, David Koechner has really risen to be a noticeable comical figure in major Hollywood productions that audience could hardly miss of. Born on August 24, 1962 in Tipton, Missouri, David serenely spent his whole early years in the city to later attend the University of Missouri where he took Political Science as his major. Nevertheless, he soon found out that his true passion actually lay in acting, especially comedy, and so decided to head for Chicago with the intention to develop his skills under the tutelage of legendary improvisation teacher Del Close.

Always eager to learn more about the field, David thus enthusiastically broadened his study through ImprovOlympic troupe then the Second City Touring Company which surprisingly served as such a great medium for him to come into the attention of SNL creator Lorne Michaels who immediately included him in the show's regular cast by 1995. Though only stayed for one year, the dark-haired guy's involvement in this hugely popular weekly comedy mainstay certainly became a solid ground base for his next move in entertainment industry as he afterwards managed to take part in a handful of film productions for the rest of the '90s. These delightfully included those in "Wag the Dog" (1997), "Dirty Work" (1998), plus "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" (1999).
