I cannot recommend the Acting For Sitcoms class at ACS ENOUGH. Todd has an unparalleled passion for and understanding of comedy. At the beginning of each class he gives a brief but always amusing update on the current events in the industry, knowing that as actors it is imperative we are kept informed and on our toes and therefore empowered when it comes to taking the reins in our careers and steering in the right direction. He knows whats up and stays current.

Class is made up of actors from pretty diverse backgrounds, from actors who just want to loosen up and be more comfortable with comedy to stand-up comedians looking to branch out and get some solid technique for translating their personas to on-camera work. And every class, they all progress. You will see it. Each week is a chance to improve your cold-reading skills, audition technique, learn to nail taking direction, and watch your second take on playback at the end of the night.

The cost of class here is crazy low and as other people have mentioned ACS offers legit $20 casting director workshops and endless networking opportunities through its Facebook group and well, the other 15 or so working actors in class every night being encouraged to self-produce and just plain make-it-happen.

Im only half-kidding when I say Todd is the Dumbledore of comedy. He can take any muggle struggling with finding the funny and with the right combination of spells turn them into a competent comedy wizard. Do yourself a favor, Accio your cellphone, conjure up an orientation meeting with Todd, and youll find your patronus has mysteriously changed to a whimsical, bespectacled little man charging down dementors while giggling and bellowing out, Hello, everybody!

This class is the real deal and also something I'm almost afraid to tell everyone about, because I selfishly want all the things I've learned and the strides I've taken in my career due to this class to be MINE. MINE! Buuut I love Todd and everyone at ACS, and I want good karma, so I will share.

The level of talent and professionalism is high, the price is good, and the $20 casting director, agent and manager workshops?...UNbeatable.

This class will help you break down comedy and sitcom scripts in a way you wouldn't have thought to do. Plus you get to know a lot about what types are your strengths and how to market yourself specifically to play those characters.

Todd also seems to have an almost psychic ability to bring up topics each week that were literally on my mind around the same time. Its cool. And very motivational. Todd has knowledge that, trust me, you want to get in on him sharing with you.

Get in class before the wait list gets nuts....and it will. You're welcome.

What can I say about this class that hasn't been said in other reviews. This class is amazing it focus's on the part of comedic acting that we need to focus on and that is finding the characters that work best for us and making sure that the first impression that casting directors get from you is the best one. Most classes focus on what comes after you get the part, this class helps you give a great performance and really dive deep into a character when you only have 20 minutes to look at sides before you are in front of the camera trying to land the part.

Todd has an incredible way of giving feedback that not only helps you as an actor but as a person. He helped me (and is still helping me) get over my insecurities as an actor and every class I feel my self getting better.

I've had my eye on ACS for some time now and I finally had a chance to begin classes in July...What a terrific decision on my part! I love this place! Todd has a way of teaching sitcom technique that is better than any other class I've attended in LA since 2008. After taking this class, I've watched my comedy audition technique and cold reading skills improve so much! I even got a few callbacks! Lauren is amazing because she gives fantastic tips on how to master the skill of cold reading and reading out loud in general which I personally needed help with. The instructors here are very passionate about comedy and the time they take with you to assure you become a master in the comedy craft is note worthy. They also keep you up to date with the latest trends in the industry, industry news and $20 casting director workshops with NO CATCH! I highly recommend you try the studio out for yourself.

I have been in classes at ACS for 6 months now and I could not be happier. Todd and ACS offer much more than classes and workshops. ACS offers a blueprint of how to build a successful career in this industry. Todd's knowledge of and respect for comedy shine through week after week and his ability to help actors see where their individual strengths lie is uncanny. The workshops are always affordable and consistently feature a who's who of CD's and other folks we should all know and be meeting with. If you are interested in growth as an actor and as a person then do yourself a favor and come to ACS

I can't recommend ACS enough. Easily the best, most useful class I have taken. If you want to improve your audition technique and be better at comedy in general, this is the class for you. Todd is very insightful and thorough and really knows comedy. I wish someone had told me about this place years ago! Highly recommended!

I have had the pleasure of having Todd Rohrbacher as my teacher for many years! He is crazy in tune with the world that is Sitcom Comedy and his knowledge, experience and humor makes him an excellent teacher! Now, combine those attributes with a studio that is the MOST progressive and forward thinking in LA, or anywhere for that matter! Actors Comedy Studio has opened many doors for me. The quality of students at ACS is a testament to Todds hard work, intelligence, and passion for what he does! I know I can bring the funny but, with Todd as my teacher, I can bring it AND BOOK IT! Word!

I've been in classes at Actors Comedy Studio on and off for a couple of years now. I can say with certainty that my work has gotten cleaner, crisper, more free, and funnier as a result. Todd's an amazing teacher, and since some of the other teachers have subbed once in a while, I've learned that they're amazing, too. I've been involved in acting and comedy for a long time, and this place is the real deal. Great work is happening here constantly! Their $20 workshop program is just the latest in the exciting stuff they offer. Seriously, I've got a strong BS-detector, and there's none here. Just a great, supportive environment that will push you to give your best.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this class. Just gonna be blunt about it.

This class is literally one of the best classes I have ever taken. For those who love comedy and just want to focus on that, its a GREAT class to learn the ins and outs of all things sitcom. This class as helped me prepare for auditions and help me to analyze a scene in a short amount of time. The Ten Characters of Comedy is part of this, and wow.... This really helps in breaking down a script and help understand the angle to approach from. I have booked things because of this alone.

Todd is brilliant. He genuinely cares about the person within the actor and pushes you to get it right. He also is VERY informed about the business side as well, giving us weekly updates and all the insider trade secrets :)

The school also offers $20 dollar workshops, bringing in agents, casting directors, and important people in the biz. Its almost unfair that its $20, because every workshop is so valuable and legit. They aren't like those workshops you get in mass emails that promise you this and that and are so vague.

So. In short. YES. .
I HIGHLY recommend this class and will continue to take it.

YEY

ACS is a great place to learn acting for comedy. It's amazing how much I've learned in a short time. There are many different types of characters in comedy and Todd helps you identify the types that you are good at. He doesn't just teach how to perform. He teaches you how to analyze scripts and how to handle yourself at auditions. He's been on both sides of the camera and has an excellent eye for what works. You can see for yourself since the performances are recorded.

As a working actor and member of SAG since 1994, I have seen and participated in numerous classes, workshops and acting schools. I can honestly say that if you are looking for a place to focus your comedy chops, this is the place to do it.
After taking a few years away to be a parent and raise my 3 kids, I was looking for somewhere to shake off the rust. What I found was a place to not only shake off that rust, but a place to put a fine polish on my comedic skills.
Todd Rohrbacher has a gift of pinpointing the heart of what is funny in scripted material and shows you how to do the same consistently.
Thank you Todd and Actors Comedy Studio

Actors Comedy Studio is THE place to go for sitcom and scripted comedy acting. I've been taking classes there for 8+ months and seen huge changes in my technique and confidence in an audition room. Nobody breaks down a script like Todd Rohrbacher. He stays on top of business news in a way that makes you wonder when he sleeps. With a different technique being emphasized each week, there is always more to learn, always something new to challenge you and it all takes place in a safe, welcoming, playful environment. Aside from the amazing ongoing sitcom acting classes, ACS has recently started offering $20 casting director workshops. The price CANNOT be beat. All of the teachers at ACS are incredibly supportive, knowledgable, and talented. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

ACS is hands down the best acting instruction I've received. I've been a student here since January. Todd was great at pin-pointing strengths and weaknesses and creating a nurturing environment. His knowledge of the business is phenomenal...he always on top of the latest news that effects the comedy actor. In this amount of time I've gotten an agent, made great contacts and my career is moving forward faster than ever.

The workshops are awesome, with talented guests and a great price. I highly recommend ACS if you're looking to improve as both an actor and person. He's that good.

I have been going to ACS for about 4 months now and I can definitely say that it's best Acting Studio I have ever been to. Not only is it just comedy training and audition technique, but Todd instills a confidence in you that you wont be able to find much elsewhere. He is a phenomenal teacher, who loves what he does, and that translates extremely well into his agenda. I love it here and won't be going anywhere else for a while

Todd Rohrbacher knows comedy. His passion for it is contagious. If you want to book comedy work, he's who you should be studying with. Todd's classes are fun, challenging, and most importantly...useful. His coaching is spot-on. And ACS also offers workshops and showcases with THE movers and shakers in the industry at very reasonable prices. Todd doesn't just teach comedy. He gives you the tools you need to be a working comedy actor in Los Angeles.

Actors Comedy Studio gave me all the tools I needed to quickly understand comedy scripts and perform them. The class is ideal for someone like me because it is solely focused on comedy. The cold reading format also got me to trust my instincts and act from my heart, not my brain. Thanks, ACS!

I've been going to ACS for the last 4 months and I love it!!! I moved here from NY, and one of the things I quickly realized is how much sitcom comedy is valued in this town. Todd's brilliance comes from his passion for comedy and specifically his love for sitcoms. He breaks down sitcom comedy into a very actor-friendly approach. I came from a 4 year theatre program in college, and found this to be a very useful segway into the world of tv comedy. His 10 characters of comedy is brilliant, and very user friendly. I'd highly recommend this class to anyone coming from a theatre program, improv background who wants to transition sitcom comedy, or anyone who wants to dive in and take some comedy classes.

One of the other very useful things I found about the studio is it's practical tools and networking opportunities. Todd also offers private coaching, which I used multiple times during pilot season. The studio also offers workshops with some awesome people like Dorian Frankel(CD for "Parks and Recreation", "The Office") and Scott David ("Criminal Minds") for very reasonable prices. ACS is a great place to grow as an actor, but there are also awesome networking opportunities to segway you directly into the business. Highly, highly recommmended!!

I have been studying at the Actor's Comedy Studio for 9 months now and cannot see myself taking classes elsewhere.
Not only is Todd incredibly observant and knowledgeable, but he represents your biggest motivator and fan in a town where true supporters are hard to come by. And everyone at the studio help in any way they can, becoming friends in the process.
The classes are great for actors and sitcom writers as you study what makes jokes work from both sides of the coin, and the different characters on sitcoms you will portray. After only a few classes, you'll know what your "type(s)" is/are and be able to polish your characterization while always maintaining the humor of each scene.
For a fun time and advancement in the industry, I highly recommend Actor's Comedy Studio.

Todd and everyone at ACS are an amazing team to work with! Not only is the studio well equipped and well organized, but I've never worked with a teacher who is as personally invested in the success of their students as Todd is. I came here 5 months ago with a theatre heavy background, and have made amazing strides at bringing my acting into a more nuanced, honest, and film-friendly place. As far as pricing goes, it really is rather cheep compared to most other legit acting classes out there - and I promise you'll get the most bang for your buck here!

Todd Rohrbacher, Elaine Hendrix, and Corinne Dekker are my dream team. They're my BFF's in the business; they tell me when I look good and most importantly when I look bad, saying things like, 'Oh my god, you are funny.' and 'Jeanette I don't know what that was, but don't do it again. Falling is fun at Actors Comedy Studio and that's why I continue to learn so rapidly studying here. They keep classes current to industry standards and are determined to help us push our careers forward in the direction where we'll likely be successful. They teach with honesty and empowerment. That's what I'm talking about! I love ACS!

Todd Rohrbacher, Elaine Hendrix, and Corinne Dekker are my dream team. They're my BFF's in the business; they tell me when I look good and most importantly when I look bad, saying things like, 'Oh my god, you are funny.' and 'Jeanette I don't know what that was, but don't do it again.

After leaving education for the first time and entering the "real world" I am so thankful to have found Actors Comedy Studio. Todd is incredibly forthcoming with his industry knowledge and is really invested in his students' success. It is a wonderful experience to be able to perform every class, and get honest and constructive feedback. I love being in an environment where the other students are committed actors who take their work seriously. If you're interested in sitcom training this is the place to study!

I'm so grateful to have found Todd and ACS! I have improv and traditional scene study training, but had no idea how to merge the two. Focusing on scripted comedy scenes, audition technique and character archetypes is exactly what I need to be a comedic television actress.
Todd also helped me put a laser beam focus on my career and goals, and is one of my biggest cheerleaders! I'm happy to have found my acting home in LA.

ACS is the prefect place to hone your craft in comedy! After taking class there, I feel I developed the tools and a better understanding of my strengths. I am more confident in my auditions!

ACS has an ongoing sitcom audition technique class taught by Todd Rohrbacher. Todd is incredible--his tools for breaking down a script in order to do a memorable cold reading are priceless. Love everything about this studio!!

I LOVE studying here. Not only do I learn about the SHOW, I learn about the BUSINESS. Everyone is very encouraging, and Todd truly cares about the growth of each student. I've grown so much since I've been here, and feel truly blessed by everyone I've met. If you want to learn comedy, ACS is the place to be.

Oh yeah, and they have CD workshops for ONLY $20!!! You're literally not going to find that anywhere in LA.

Actors Comedy Studio is the first school I have attended in Los Angeles that I have felt is worth every penny. The staff is absolutely incredible, providing both top notch on-camera training and practical career knowledge. The school attracts talented, focused and supportive actors who challenge me on a weekly basis to bring my A-game. The school also works hard to foster a community of artists by providing weekly shows, outside support and some of the best workshops in town. If you are a comedic actor in Los Angeles, do yourself a favor and check out Actors Comedy Studio.

Really enjoyed ACS. Coming from New York, the training here was perfect for my transition. They know the business here and they teach you how to succeed based on their own personal experience. I feel blessed to be involved with ACS!

Todd is a master at writing, acting, directing, and recognizing great comedy! He expertly provides his students with essential advice for how to succeed not only in the audition room, but also in their careers. If you are looking for a great studio to take classes to help further your career, you should sign up for the Actors Comedy Studio.

I've studied at The Actor's Comedy Studio for the past few months and have already learned a ton. It's not like any other class in that is solely focused on comedy and on camera work which helps tremendously for auditions. Todd Rohrbacher is one of the best. I've watched Todd elevate good work to the "booking jobs" level. He has the insight to know what they are looking for out there and he helps actors achieve that level of specificity and truth in their work. He is a great teacher who just knows funny and with the Actors Comedy Studio he has created a supportive and fun place to play. Every class you work and Todd is always mixing it up so it's constantly challenging and unexpected. It's hard in LA to find someone who truly cares and I highly recommend ACS for anyone looking for a sitcom class that's so much more than just taking your money.

I'm a BIG fan of the Actors Comedy Studio. This studio is great for everyone at all levels. Whether you're new to acting or booking guest stars and recurring roles on television shows Todd works with you and gets the best out of you. The actors who come and learn and practice here are devoted and skilled and encouraging! Todd has such a great knowledge of comedy and his ability to teach it stands out above any other coach I've had.
Every week you get up in class and work several times on camera, which is key! I've learned more from Todd in 3 months than I have the 6 years I've been here... if only I found ACS sooner!

I can't say enough great things about Actors Comedy Studio. Todd is an amazing teacher and person in general. He really cares about each of his students and takes the time to help them overcome their obstacles in acting. He has a great instinct and will take you out of your comfort zone, but in a loving way to make you the best you can be. I am so blessed to find a class I feel comfortable enough in to try new things and even look like a fool. I am laughing and learning constantly at ACS! The support staff is very friendly and helpful. I encourage everyone to take a chance and try out class at ACS and fall in love!

So, comedy is not in my acting wheelhouse and I was a little off put by the idea of straight comedy classes. But Todd is really good at meeting you at your level and working from there. The classes are really fun and Todd knows his stuff. He has a great insight into comedic timing and knows how to pull your best work from you. Great classes that I would and plan to suggest to my friends.
Your work is put on tape so you can watch and see the technical side of your performance and everyone works several times each week.
These classes have really helped me get a better handle on comedy and on the on camera aspects of my performances. Really well run and I hope to continue developing that side of my acting at ACS in the future

The Actor's Comedy Studio is one of the best classes in town, hands down. Todd is a wonderful teacher who is also a working professional actor, and is very honest with his acting notes and suggestions.

The Actor's Comedy Studio is the only class I've taken so far that is devoted to sitcom acting - all of you actors out there that want to be on TV, this class is a must!

There is never a wasted minute in class at ACS...all of the classes are well structured so that every actor/actress gets to perform 2-3 times EVERY CLASS and every performance is recorded to be reviewed at the end of the night! Getting to perform, get notes and then review my own performance has helped me get more comfortable in front of the camera and learn where I need to trim bad habits and become more expressive. Todd rocks!

As an actor new to Los Angeles (eep!), Actors Comedy Studio has been an incredible resource. As a student in the Acting for Sitcoms class, I've gained a broader perspective of what Casting Directors are looking for when casting for sitcoms. Todd Rohrbacher, a man a funny as he is knowledgeable, gives his students the opportunity to perform in front of a camera and WATCH THEMSELVES at the end of every session, whilst honestly explaining the comedic strengths and weaknesses of each actor's character decisions. This is vital to developing consistent and authentic characters. If you're for acting classes that specialize in comedy, I would heartily endorse Actors Comedy Studio!

If you're looking to get some solid on-camera training, make sure you check this place out. 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 night, 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. I've taken quite a few, and this has easily been one of the best (and most enjoyable). If you're curious, make sure to catch one of his free audits!
