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
You are sitting in front of your computer right now, checking-out this website, contemplating the pursuit of a dream. You’re well aware of what your heart and your head and your gut have told you repeatedly – namely, become an actor. Guess what? Todd Rohrbacher will help you do more than sit and stare at a computer screen while know-it-alls like your heart, your head and your gut offer-up advice. Todd is a gifted, well-trained, experienced actor who will excite you, motivate you and assist you in honing the skills you need to make it as a working actor.Brain Frates
ACS offers the best comedy training in town – bar none. Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher is ahead of the trends and offers invaluable insight on not only comedy skills but also marketing and all things “industry”. Cannot say enough good stuff about this studio!Corinne Dekker
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
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
It’s really hard for a writer or director to nail a pitch because so much comes down to performance. Gunnar is able to take his natural abilities to elicit great performances out of actors & tailor that towards helping ‘behind the camera’ types feel comfortable when performing their pitch. On top of that, Gunnar was instrumental in offering great story advice, funny jokes, & helping to bring the emotion out at key story points. But I beg you, please don’t hire him, cause he may be too booked to coach me!Mike L. Murphy
Recently took the Comedy Intensive with Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher and Dorian Frankel at ACS. What a great experience, they really know they’re stuff, and if you’re looking to get you Comedy chops polished, this is the event to attend! You work many times in this Intensive, and having Casting Director Dorian Frankel give her insight into the casting process, is extremely helpful. Take the Intensive, you’ll be glad you did.Alex Ball
I have had the pleasure of having Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher as my teacher for many years! He is crazy in tune with the world that is Television Comedy… and his knowledge, experience and humor makes him an excellent teacher! The quality of students at ACS is a testament to Gunnar’s hard work, intelligence, and passion for what he does! I know I can bring the funny but, with Gunnar as my teacher, I can bring it AND BOOK IT!Michael Piper-Younie
Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher has the experience and the know how to teach you your own strengths. He gives you an edge in this industry by refining what you do best. This isn’t an “acting methodology.” It’s a training ground for brilliance.Byrne Offutt
Run don’t walk to sign up at ACS! You get a taste of all the following in Gunnar’s classes: cold reading, audition technique, scene study, TV single camera, TV multi-camera, improv, film comedy, basic scene study, character analysis, etc. We also celebrate good news and share helpful info on the biz each week before class starts. It’s really a supportive environment, and I’ve made my best friends in LA through these classes. What a great feeling to be part of a group where you are learning, growing and being with people you respect and love to be around. Oh, and most importantly, laughing your ass off!Robin Phelps
