We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

David Koechner

Friday July 30-Saturday July 31 at Wiseguys West Valley



David Koechner’s face may be better known than his name. His big break came when he played Champ Kind in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, but his foray into comedy was launched through the famous Second City Chicago troupe. His experience there led to a yearlong stint on Saturday Night Live, followed by supporting roles in such movies as Get Smart, Thank You for Smoking and Semi-Pro, and his recurring spot as the gleefully sexist Todd Packer on The Office.

His love for live performance has manifested itself in projects such as The Naked Trucker & T-Bones and Beer Shark Mice, both of which allow Koechner the freedom to develop new characters, sketches and songs like the ones he’s bringing to Utah. More of a one-man show than a stand-up routine, Koechner’s performance promises to bring an energy and versatility that is sure to leave audiences begging for more of this type of entertainment at Wiseguys.
