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
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
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
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
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 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
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
I have had the pleasure of participating in several of Gunnar’s classes. His outstanding teaching ability is matched by his personal interest in his students. He knows the business and the craft, enabling those under his guidance to achieve goals beyond their expectations. Gunnar has created a very positive change in my career.Kate Linder
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
There hasn’t been a single audition I’ve gone into as a professional in which I haven’t employed the lessons I’ve received from Gunnar. I can’t recommend him enough.Henry Watkins
Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher spent two seasons as a Studio Dialogue Coach for NBC. Not to be confused with a Dialect Coach who deals with accents, a Dialogue Coach is essentially an all purpose Acting Coach who’s on set for a specific TV show or Film.
A Dialogue Coach can help an actor simply get lines down in a hurry, provide performance coaching or add emotional support and security to an actor on set.
Gunnar has worked as a Dialogue Coach on network, primetime sitcoms and can be a valuable asset. An On-Set Sitcom Coach needs to be efficient, professional and discreet.
Gunnar understands that and can seamlessly blend with any cast and crew.

Kids and Teens always benefit from having Lauren’s help during a shoot. There are tremendous opportunities for young actors in TV sitcoms and Film these days and few coaches who specialize in sculpting great comedic performances under pressure and tight time restrictions.
