    COMEDY: David Koechner
    You know David Koechner from, well, tons of things. He’s most recognized as Todd Packer, Michael Scott’s best friend on The Office, and as Champ Kind from The Anchorman films. Early in his career, though he had steady work, he sought a bit of work stability. “I didn’t ever want to be without a job, so I called my agent and asked, ‘Can you put me on the road?’ ” he says. A week later, she had 11 gigs lined up for him. “They were three months out, so I just worked up an act in town, put a bunch of character pieces together and went out on the road.” These days his set is more family-driven. “I’m married with five kids,” he says. “I call my show Symphony of Chaos, because that’s what my life is.” 
    7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday; 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday; 7 p.m. Sunday. $20-$50. Funny Bone Liberty, 7518 Bales St., Liberty Township, .
