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
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
There hasn’t been a single audition I’ve gone into as a professional in which I haven’t employed the lessons I’ve received from Gunnar. I can’t recommend him enough.Henry Watkins
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
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
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
It’s really hard for a writer or director to nail a pitch because so much comes down to performance. Gunnar is able to take his natural abilities to elicit great performances out of actors & tailor that towards helping ‘behind the camera’ types feel comfortable when performing their pitch. On top of that, Gunnar was instrumental in offering great story advice, funny jokes, & helping to bring the emotion out at key story points. But I beg you, please don’t hire him, cause he may be too booked to coach me!Mike L. Murphy
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
I am writing this review on the Comedy Cast Intensive I had with Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher and Dorian Frankel. This class is amazing. You learn so much about yourself, comedy, the casting process, and auditioning all in those five hours. It could save you years of heartache and problems. Mickey Casab
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
“Gunnar is honestly one of the most talented people I’ve met in this industry – a brilliant performer, a gifted writer and a passionate and inspiring teacher. He has the rare combination of tremendous talent and the ability to teach it.” ~ Erin Ehrlich, Executive Producer/Director, MTV’s Awkward
