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
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 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

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
I love ACS. Thanks, Gunnar! I can’t leave a class here without feeling energized and encouraged about my next audition. Instead of feeling unsure, I’m confident and motivated to keep plugging ahead no matter what the script, casting director or director throws at me in the room. I am prepared. That’s because Gunnar knows what he’s doing. In any given class we could work on script analysis, improv, with a partner, on our own audition style… but no matter what the focus is that day, you’re up in front of that camera and you’re watching yourself by the end of class. Who can’t learn from that?Caroline Timm
I have never met anyone who has a more perfect understanding of comedy than Gunnar. 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

Another bonus for studying at this studio is the business skills that they teach towards developing an acting career.Hennie Kai
