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
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
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
Coming from NY, and having most of my experience be from the stage, I needed to find a studio where I could work on my on-camera technique. Not only did I find that at ACS, I found so much more! Every class is on camera and we get to watch back all the work we do in class. I would recommend this studio to anyone at any level because Gunnar can truly help actors who have the drive to become successful.Kim Vasilakis
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
One of the best on-camera classes in LA! Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher is an incredible teacher with great insights, especially when it comes to acting for sitcoms. You get to work 2-3 times per class, you get great feedback and tips, and then you review your performance afterward to see how you look on camera. AND, class is a blast in a half; I laugh more in this class than I do at some comedy clubs. Class at ACS is one of the few I recommend for actors here in Los Angeles. Patrick Donahue
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
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 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
Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher at Actors Comedy Studio has really helped me gain confidence and become the actor I am today. Gunnar takes time each class to give individual attention to all of his students and has helped me figure out my type, and exactly where I fit in out in the acting world. Not only is Gunnar an amazing teacher but also he is a great person that I have always felt has had my absolute best interest at heart!Chelsea Gross
