What you'll learn in this comedy class:

The Heroes of Comedy, iCAMERA, Joke Discovery

Comedy Essentials will give you powerful tools you will use throughout your lifetime. We teach you world class script analysis, that lays the foundation for outstanding auditions. Writers and producers hire actors. When you understand scripts the way writers intended, you’ll start booking. The confidence and certainty you gain from our highly efficient approach to the work makes acting and auditioning fun. You’ll never walk into an audition with doubts about the material again.

Should you start here? Probably. Comedy Essentials is exactly the right place for new actors to start but also challenges those with moderate training. If you have a theater degree, improv/sketch training or a collection of courses under your belt, we will help you integrate your prior experience and level up to industry standards. With our training, you’ll never miss a clue in a script again.

Strengthen Your Foundation

Comedy Essentials is a six-week intensive course, packed with powerhouse information that will start you on the path to success.

This is where we introduce you to our powerful iCAMERA script analysis method as well as The Heroes of Comedy; Ten Comedy Archetypes Every Actor Should Know. Would you like an acting superpower? Our globally recognized system will give you just that.

ACS Founder, Gunnar Rohrbacher, designed iCAMERA to make life easier for you! A veteran of Hollywood, he honed his skills as a writer, actor and comedy teacher simultaneously over thirty years. The insight he brings to breaking down a comedy script is game changing. The story suddenly springs to life along with the jokes and characters.

The Heroes of Comedy are archetypes utilized by writers throughout television history. As you grow more and more familiar with The Heroes of Comedy, two things happen; 

  1. You gain a deeper understanding of how you are seen in the marketplace by casting, producers, agents and managers. 
  2. You grasp characters exactly the way the writers envisioned them. No more guessing!

Make Casting Directors Your Biggest Fans

Most actors begin their journey through our comprehensive training program here. Beginning with Comedy Essentials is highly recommended, even if you’ve had prior training. We want you to fully benefit from our PATH.
