David Koechner on What “The Office” and “Anchorman” Sets Were Really Like!
David Koechner stopped by the show today to promote his upcoming shows at Laugh Boston this weekend and to chat about his experiences on Anchorman and The Office. We all thought he was a blast and super nice. He answered all of our questions without a single eyeroll! Whammy!
Anchorman never gets old
Anchorman is one of my favorite comedies of all time, when it comes on or I happen to see it while scrolling the channels it’s one that I have to pause to watch because it’s humor never gets old. The cast was star studded and amazing, lead by Will Farrell it included Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner.
David Koechner played the affable dim witted sports announcer Champ Kind, who has a strange man crush on Ron Burgandy. If you’ve seen Anchorman, (I suppose if you haven’t you wouldn’t be reading this) you know it has some of the most everlasting comedy lines of all time. From Sex Panther to Stay Classy San Diego to Champs “Whammy!”
The Office is always open!
The Office is a classic sitcom that plays nonstop on cable and even my daughters who were 5 and 7 when it started are now 23 and 26 and they watch it constantly!
What were the sets really like?
We asked David if working on these shows was as fun as it looked or did he get anchor downed by all the egos?
