I have known, worked with, been directed by and laughed with Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher for over fifteen years. There is no one in the business of comedy with more chops, skills, and range of experience. He not only knows funny, he is funny, and he can teach funny. Here’s your challenge: do you have what it takes to listen to him and get your butt moving? Because his ability to spot and nurture talent is matched only by his desire to see everyone succeed and that, my friends, in this town, is the rarest combination of all.Carolyn Hennesy
I love working with Gunnar. He empowers me to make strong, creative choices while still honoring my own unique voice. He also knows the business, its trends and what is needed when I walk into a room. I don’t audition without him!Elaine Hendrix
Gunnar is an amazing teacher! He is so specific, and really helps each actor find their individual strengths. His insights are spot on, not only with comedy technique but especially when he breaks down scripts with you. His audition coaching has been excellent for me! His comedic sensibility is the best in town. The best.Susannah Hillard
A few months ago, I got a last minute audition. The script wasn’t available ahead of time, so I knew that I would have to work hard and fast on it once I got to the session. When I arrived, I sat down with the script and began breaking it down using the tools and processes that Gunnar taught me at ACS. After about 4 minutes, the writer of the series came out of the room and said that they were ready for me. I went into the audition and they all laughed – the writer, director and lead actor. More importantly, I wasn’t “acting” in the scene, I was really in it. I got the job.Phillip Daniel
Gunnar’s class at ACS is more than just an acting class. It’s a real world acting class. He brings his years of comedy and casting into the classroom. This is a class where I’ve learned something more than just comedy and acting technique, I’ve learned what it takes to make it in today’s acting world.Peter Marr
Gunnar has created an amazing studio where actors can come together to learn craft and business skills, find their unique ‘funny’, and grow as artists and professionals in a supportive community. I am so grateful to Gunnar for his expertise and amazing insight. His classes and private coaching have been instrumental in my acting career. He has helped me to build a resume with TV Comedy credits I am incredibly proud of. His feedback is honest but always given with kindness and compassion. I look forward to continuing my personal and artistic growth with Gunnar as a teacher, mentor and true artist.Mary Passeri
I have grown so much as an Actor under Gunnar’s tutelage. He has the keen ability to see your strengths and weaknesses, and he helps and guides you in a very supportive way. Highly recommend studying at Actors Comedy Studio!Alex Alexander
Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher’s expert knowledge of comedy along with his passion for sharing his knowledge with actors is what makes him an exceptional teacher. The fact that he is an extraordinarily talented actor and consummate professional is icing on the cake and makes the experience of learning and working with him a benefit to actors in their off camera professional life as well. He is a rare teacher!Walker Brandt
At Actors Comedy Studio, we do something new and exciting every class. Gunnar always thinks about what will be useful in our day to day lives and auditions and we will revolve a whole class around something he thinks we need to focus on. If I ever stop taking his class for even 2 weeks, my acting and my happiness in life declines. He is now looking for new and creative ways to help his students succeed besides just teaching them acting.Shannon Kingston
Gunnar is Amazing!… best teacher I have studied with since I have been in LA! If you dont take his class, you’re delaying your success!Jonathan Sterritt
