I have had the pleasure of participating in several of Gunnar’s classes. His outstanding teaching ability is matched by his personal interest in his students. He knows the business and the craft, enabling those under his guidance to achieve goals beyond their expectations. Gunnar has created a very positive change in my career.Kate Linder
At Actors Comedy Studio, we do something new and exciting every class. Gunnar 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
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 Gunnar 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. R. May
In today’s industry, actors must wear a number of hats: producing, directing, editing, writing, etc., all in addition to honing their other acting-related skills. At ACS, you get not only incredible comedic training, but also the encouragement and skills needed to push past the overwhelming business aspects of “the biz,” to create, produce, and market your own work. I earned my BFA in Drama from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and even though my training there was top-notch, I can confidently say that my training with Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher at ACS has been equally as effective and beneficial, if not more. Not only is Gunnar a comedic genius and a fantastic teacher, but he is also an incredibly compassionate human being and 100% committed to every student he teaches.Allison Oliver
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
They say it’s all about who you know… Well, ACS is where you make those contacts! Gunnar Todd is the main instructor and he’s very bright and his expertise goes way beyond breaking down a comedy script. What’s crucial about working with him is that he’s a working successful actor himself who BOOKS.George Jonson
Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher is an amazing teacher. Not only is he a genius when it comes to comedy, but he is a very caring human being. He’s the first teacher I’ve met who is not on a power trip or into tearing students down. He truly wants his students to succeed as actors.Damon Kohli
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
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 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
