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”. 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 Todd!Jonathan Levit
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. 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
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
I have known, worked with, been directed by and laughed with 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
There is no doubt that Actors Comedy Studio is the only studio of its kind; where actors are given the chance to study and perfect the fundamental technique of situational comedy. Before, I had found my way into some improv classes or relied on the occasional comedy script I got in my scene study class, but it wasn’t enough. With the instruction of Todd Rohrbacher, I was able to elevate my comedy technique and have a leg up on the competition. ACS truly is a must for anyone else who is serious about working in comedy.J.

Actors Comedy Studio is way ahead of the curve. Todd Rohrbacher not only provides his students with superb coaching in comedy acting technique but an invaluable wealth of knowledge in regards to the business, and the methods of marketing oneself in entertainment. He is an incredibly organized, commited and talented teacher/coach. His community of students is one of the most supportive, skilled and motivated industry groups in LA.Doris Davis
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 Todd 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 Todd. 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
If you’re not studying with Todd Rohrbacher over at ACS, I honestly think you’re not entirely living up to your potential. Todd’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 Todd. Highly recommended.Matthew Swanson
At Actors Comedy Studio, we do something new and exciting every class. Todd 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
