If you’re not studying with Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher over at ACS, I honestly think you’re not entirely living up to your potential. Gunnar’s ability to individually coach and teach his students, while in a group setting, is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. People leave his class feeling encouraged and nurtured and CHALLENGED, and very much like they’re on the road to being the best performer they can be. I said it earlier, and I’ll say it again: you should be studying with Gunnar Todd. Highly recommended. Matthew Swanson
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
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
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
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’s class at ACS is more than just an acting class. It’s a real world acting class. He brings his years of comedy and casting into the classroom. This is a class where I’ve learned something more than just comedy and acting technique, I’ve learned what it takes to make it in today’s acting world.Peter Marr
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
There is no doubt that Actors Comedy Studio is the only studio of its kind; where actors are given the chance to study and perfect the fundamental technique of situational comedy. Before, I had found my way into some improv classes or relied on the occasional comedy script I got in my scene study class, but it wasn’t enough. With the instruction of Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher, I was able to elevate my comedy technique and have a leg up on the competition. ACS truly is a must for anyone else who is serious about working in comedy.J. R. May
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
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
