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 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
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
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
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
Gunnar Todd’s comedy class is the only acting class that has given me the technique and the confidence to pursue an acting career after years of absence from the industry. Gunnar understands both comedy and the “business” of show business.Darlene Levin-Hodgetts
One of the best acting schools around! There have been countless times where I have taken class one week and the lesson in that class immediately helped me in my very next audition. Equal parts resourceful and inspirational. Thank you ACS!!!!Erica Hanrahan-Ball
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
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
I have had the pleasure of having Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher as my teacher for many years! He is crazy in tune with the world that is Television Comedy… and his knowledge, experience and humor makes him an excellent teacher! The quality of students at ACS is a testament to Gunnar’s hard work, intelligence, and passion for what he does! I know I can bring the funny but, with Gunnar as my teacher, I can bring it AND BOOK IT!Michael Piper-Younie
