David Koechner, that character actor who has made you laugh in many movies and TV guest appearances, got his start in Chicago studying improv at the iO (improv Olympic). Coincidence? Only in that I just spent the weekend there for the inaugural Just For Laughs Chicago festival, and that Koechner stars in a new Funny or Die video, in which he tells a group of youth baseball players what it takes these days to become a famous athlete. Life lessons!
