Meet Lauren Bertoni of Actors Comedy Studio in Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Bertoni.

Lauren, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started performing when I was a child. Putting together performances for my parent’s dinner parties or an evening street show with my beach friends during the summer. One of our most famous beach performances was to the song foot lose where we used to blow up musical instruments along with stellar choreography to entertain the beach patrons walking home from a long day playing in the surf and sand. We were quite the hit.
During middle school and high school, my mom signed me up for singing lessons and professional acting classes. I continued training and performing throughout college and eventually moved to LA in my early 20’s to peruse a career in television comedy.

I was fortunate to find a mentor and now business partner Gunnar Rohrbacher shortly after moving to Hollywood. After a few years of studying sitcom and audition technique with him as an actor, I moved into a teaching assistant position. I was able to learn how to be an acting teacher after a few years of studying with him.

In 2010, Gunnar and I opened Actors Comedy Studio; the world’s only acting studio dedicated to scripted comedy and the art of audition technique.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Opening a small business will always have its challenges. There are challenges that pop up every day. Once I feel that we have a handle on everything, sure enough, something happens. Our school is located in the Liberace building in Hollywood. It’s very special building in Hollywood with lots of history. When we were supposed to start construction on our suite the insurance company that was moving out stayed for 12 extra days which really put a delay on everything and that was just the beginning. But, we are 7 years in and I think we are just hitting our stride.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
At Actors Comedy Studio, we specialized in scripted comedy and the art of auditioning in Hollywood. We are experts in teaching and helping actors learn how to be masters at auditioning and booking work. I am most proud of our integrity and our curriculum. Gunnar and I are exceptional teachers and are honored when actors come to learn from us with their hopes and dreams in tow. We train actors on how to have a career in a comedy like no other acting school.

What were you like growing up?
I was a tomboy growing up. I loved sports and playing outside. I have always had an outgoing personality from the time I entered the world. Entertaining people was never anything I thought about it just what I did.
