Is there a prerequisite for this class?

No. This is our starting point for learning to act for television comedy.


What is the class size?

Class is limited to a maximum of 14 students.


What if I miss a class?

You can email your instructor at for notes and any materials handed out in class. Our six-week courses do not have class make-up options.


Can I check out the class before signing up?

In order to maintain class integrity, we do not allow auditing. If you would like to meet with one of our instructors for a brief, in-person meeting to ask questions, you can email us at


It’s been a while since I took a class. Where should I start?

Comedy Essentials is strongly encouraged for most actors who train at Actors Comedy Studio. Our method for working successfully in tv comedy is thoroughly explored in Comedy Essentials and is challenging even for actors with a theater degree or a collection of various acting training.

Advanced and working actors are welcome to begin in The Audition Code or Master Class, depending on experience and instructor approval.


Do you offer payment plans?

Your spot in the course is not secure until full payment is received.


I have zero experience. Will I be okay?

Yes! Our program is built to accommodate actors learning from scratch and experienced actors who want our specialized training in television comedy.


How do I sign up for a course?

For Comedy Essentials, you can register online and pay for the course using a credit card or debit card. You can also call and enroll by phone.


How often does Comedy Essentials meet?

Once a week for six consecutive weeks.


I still have questions, is there someone I can talk to?

Yes! You can email or call us at 323-302-9152.
