After college, Koechner moved to Chicago where he studied improvisation at the IO (formerly the ImprovOlympic) with Del Close and Charna Halpern. He went on to become an ensemble member of Second City Northwest.

From there, he spent one season on the cast of "Saturday Night Live" before moving to Los Angeles, where he landed guest appearances on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "RENO 911!" and played a recurring character on "Still Standing."

Concurrently, Koechner and his partner, Dave "Gruber" Allen, developed and performed in "The Naked Trucker & T-Bones Show" on stage at Club Largo in Los Angeles.

Koechner's first major film break came when he was cast as Champ Kind in "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy." Since then, Koechner has been seen in a variety of studio and independent films such as "Daltry Calhoun" and "The Dukes of Hazzard" with Johnny Knoxville, "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," "Waiting," "Let's Go to Prison," "Snakes on a Plane," the animated feature "Barnyard," the family film "Yours, Mine and Ours" and the critically acclaimed "Thank You for Smoking," opposite Aaron Eckhart and Maria Bello. Koechner can be spotted in cameo roles in "40 Year Old Virgin," "Balls of Fury," "RENO 911!: Miami" and will star in "The Comebacks" for Fox Atomic.
