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
Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher has the experience and the know how to teach you your own strengths. He gives you an edge in this industry by refining what you do best. This isn’t an “acting methodology.” It’s a training ground for brilliance.Byrne Offutt
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 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 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 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
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
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
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
In addition to ongoing group class, ACS also offers private acting class to actors who wish to work one on one.
Anyone can arrange private sessions with Gunnar or any of other highly skilled instructors. This is a quick and effective way to produce results for any actor who has a specific acting or auditioning issue to conquer.
Private classes are particularly effective for experienced actors who have the general dynamics of the industry under their belt but want to bring their comedic audition technique to the next level. Gunnar’s experience as a Network Dialogue Coach is particularly helpful in a one on one environment. He’s worked on sets, coached Emmy nominated actors and has a track record of proven success.
Individualized sessions are also great for newer actors who get “fast tracked” into the business. Working too soon might sound like a good problem to have, but it can also break careers. Private Classes are an effective way for actors to get up to speed when their opportunities exceed their experience.
A schedule for Private Class times is designed with your specific goals in mind. Our instructors will meet with you privately to devise a plan of action.
While ACS specializes in comedy, we are by no means limited to teaching or coaching comedy exclusively. We offer a nurturing and supportive environment that enables students to progress quickly toward their desired goals and break through both emotional and technical barriers.
