‘Cheap Thrills’ Interview with David Koechner | EXCLUSIVE

Comedy mastermind David Koechner takes a dark and troubling turn in the new thriller Cheap Thrills, which is available on VOD now before its release in theaters this March. The twisted tale follows Craig (Pat Healy), a struggling family man who loses his low-wage job and is threatened with eviction. In an effort to delay facing the music at home, he heads to a local bar and encounters an old friend (Ethan Embry). These two are quickly roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner) along with his mysterious wife (Sara Paxton). The couple engages Craig and his buddy in a series of innocent dares in exchange for money over the course of the evening, with each challenge upping the ante in both reward and boundaries. It seems like easy and much needed money, but the couple's sick sense of humor pushes just how far Craig and his friend are willing to go for money and Cheap Thrills.

We recently caught up with Dave, an old friend of the site, to chat about the movie, his turn as a more dramatic leading man, and his upcoming NBC variety show. We also ruminate on the possible return of Gerald 'T-Bone' Tibbons, who is eagerly awaiting his comeback.

Grab your Scotch and relive Champ Kind's horrible childhood with these five classics. A special shout out to David Koechner, who put us in touch with Champ this morning, making this special Halloween treat possible.
