I have taken many, many classes in los Angeles, ranging from acting scene study to comedy to improv. There are very few teachers or schools that “get it”. Gunnar Todd is at the top of the list! He understands what it means to be an actor and deliver what is needed on screen and on stage. If you are trying to accomplish any level of success in this business, as an actor, you NEED to study with Gunnar!Jonathan Levit
Gunnar is an awesome coach. On top of being a proper professional with vast experience, he is quite inspiring and supportive. One of the most favourite learning experiences in acting I have ever had, and I have studied with wonderful teachers. Gunnar has a unique ability to see right through you and thus is able to fine-tune you in a very personalized way. If you haven’t yet – do yourself a favour and go see for yourself.Konstantin Lavysh
If you’re paying attention, you’ll see that comedy is becoming more and more prevalent on TV, film and the web. Even in drama, it’s important to know how to inject some humour to add interest and depth to the story. Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher is a founder and coach at this comedy studio, and he has a gift for teaching funny. He pays attention to every individual and helps them to find what’s uniquely funny about themselves. He’s truly committed to giving the best materials and the best of himself to his students, and that’s invaluable in a teacher. Another bonus for studying at this studio is the business skills that they teach towards developing an acting career.Hennie Kai

You’re well aware of what your heart and your head and your gut have told you repeatedly – namely, become an actor. Guess what?

Gunnar changed me into a booking actor, transformed me into a quick study for cold reads, and provided the tools I need for a career. He also mentored me in self-marketing! What teacher in Hollywood does that!? So if you are looking for a great learning environment, with amazing methods to help you book jobs, with a teacher who’ll spend the time to really get to know you and help you reach your highest peak, then I’d highly recommend the Actors Comedy Studio. Trust me, I bounced from 4 different “Well known” studios and none compare!Nathan Lucas
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
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 love ACS. Thanks, Gunnar! I can’t leave a class here without feeling energized and encouraged about my next audition. Instead of feeling unsure, I’m confident and motivated to keep plugging ahead no matter what the script, casting director or director throws at me in the room. I am prepared. That’s because Gunnar knows what he’s doing. In any given class we could work on script analysis, improv, with a partner, on our own audition style… but no matter what the focus is that day, you’re up in front of that camera and you’re watching yourself by the end of class. Who can’t learn from that?Caroline Timm
If you’re not studying with Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher over at ACS, I honestly think you’re not entirely living up to your potential. Gunnar’s ability to individually coach and teach his students, while in a group setting, is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. People leave his class feeling encouraged and nurtured and CHALLENGED, and very much like they’re on the road to being the best performer they can be. I said it earlier, and I’ll say it again: you should be studying with Gunnar Todd. Highly recommended. Matthew Swanson
LA is a great place filled with opportunities, and chances for actors, but at the same time you could easily get lost in all of it. It has only been less than a month since I’ve started attending Gunnar’s class at the Actors Comedy Studio and it has been a wake up call experience. I feel very focused and have a clear sense of direction of my future acting career. If you feel lost or you don’t know where to start, this is the place to go!Mariko Miyamitsu
