An alumnus of Chicago’s Second City Theater, Koechner got his first break as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and has since become an instantly recognizable face, appearing in more than 200 films and television shows. Additional notable film credits include Waiting, Out Cold, Talladega Nights, Get Smart, Extract, Thank You for Smoking, A Haunted House, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, Priceless, Legendary’s Krampus and festival favorite, Cheap Thrills.
