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
Gunnar Rohrbacher is determined to make each student self-sufficient and responsible for their own actions in this new media-driven industry, and with the tools I’ve gained from Actors Comedy Studio, I truly feel I am ready to face it. I am proud to be associated with ACS, where I’ve found nothing but supportive, driven, like-minded friends.Sarah McLean
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
Actors Comedy Studio is way ahead of the curve. Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher not only provides his students with superb coaching in comedy acting technique but an invaluable wealth of knowledge in regards to the business, and the methods of marketing oneself in entertainment. 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
Gunnar has created an amazing studio where actors can come together to learn craft and business skills, find their unique ‘funny’, and grow as artists and professionals in a supportive community. I am so grateful to Gunnar for his expertise and amazing insight. His classes and private coaching have been instrumental in my acting career. He has helped me to build a resume with TV Comedy credits I am incredibly proud of. His feedback is honest but always given with kindness and compassion. I look forward to continuing my personal and artistic growth with Gunnar as a teacher, mentor and true artist.Mary Passeri
I love working with Gunnar. He empowers me to make strong, creative choices while still honoring my own unique voice. He also knows the business, its trends and what is needed when I walk into a room. I don’t audition without him!Elaine Hendrix
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
Run don’t walk to sign up at ACS! You get a taste of all the following in Gunnar’s classes: cold reading, audition technique, scene study, TV single camera, TV multi-camera, improv, film comedy, basic scene study, character analysis, etc. We also celebrate good news and share helpful info on the biz each week before class starts. It’s really a supportive environment, and I’ve made my best friends in LA through these classes. What a great feeling to be part of a group where you are learning, growing and being with people you respect and love to be around. Oh, and most importantly, laughing your ass off!Robin Phelps
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
