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

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
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
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
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
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
I have never met anyone who has a more perfect understanding of comedy than Gunnar. My confidence in my acting has improved drastically and I landed commercial and theatrical representation as a result of one of the Studio’s showcases! I’ve also found that students in this Studio are very motivated. I’ve never been around so many people who are constantly producing their own content.Amanda Nix
I’m an actor from Sydney, Australia and I’ve worked with Gunnar in L.A. Working with Gunnar is one of the things I’m most looking forward to when I go back to L.A.Daniel Nemes
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
Whether it’s an audition or a cold reading, I have confidence. I feel prepared. Gunnar has given me several tools to quickly break down a script. It is such a relief to be prepared and look intelligent in the audition room. I can stop winging it now. I can’t thank him enough.Lindy Loundagin
