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
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
Last year, after over a decade slowly building my acting career, I booked my first SAG-AFTRA co-star role. I directly attribute my current success as a working actor to the lessons I learned from Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher. Though his class focuses on comedy, Gunnar knows it’s not enough to be funny. His class builds comic actors by focusing first on acting fundamentals, in a manner that is not only comprehensive and easy to understand, but easy to implement. Most importantly, I’ve learned to trust the preparation I do before an audition, so that I can relax into my best self during the audition.Clint Tauscher
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
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
Whether it’s an audition or a cold reading, I have confidence. I feel prepared. Gunnar has given me several tools to quickly break down a script. It is such a relief to be prepared and look intelligent in the audition room. I can stop winging it now. I can’t thank him enough.Lindy Loundagin
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
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
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
