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
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’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
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
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
I have taken many, many classes in los Angeles, ranging from acting scene study to comedy to improv. There are very few teachers or schools that “get it”. Gunnar Todd is at the top of the list! He understands what it means to be an actor and deliver what is needed on screen and on stage. If you are trying to accomplish any level of success in this business, as an actor, you NEED to study with Gunnar!Jonathan Levit
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 was fortunate to find Gunnar’s class two years ago after I’d graduated from an acting conservatory and had a good foundation, but needed to hone my comedic skills, type, and knowledge of the business. Not only did I find a supportive, yet challenging teacher, but I also found a group of highly motivated actors that I have since collaborated with. Gunnar’s classes are always a nurturing environment where you feel free to take chances. I’m excited about Actors Comedy Studio because it’s truly a community and is at the forefront of all of the new media changes in the industry. Instead of trying to catch up to the changes, we’re all carving our own paths.Abby Walla
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
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
