My job is to get you out of your own way. When I teach you to fiercely pursue your actions, the honest expression of your emotional life will be released. As a graduate of Yale School of Drama (MFA), as well as SUNY Purchase (BFA), I have been lucky enough to study such a wide range of techniques. Meisner, Strasberg, Hagen, Royal Shakespeare Company, and many more. Together, we can discover what blocks may be holding you back, so that you can truly discover your greatest potential as an actor. Working in all three mediums of television and film has taught me the simple adjustments for each, and I will share these with you. I am a working actor and stand up comedian, and look forward to working with you, at whatever level you may be at.

Frank is a very patient and skilled instructor. He has a vast knowledge of various acting methods and is able to tailor each session to fit the needs of the student. I would highly recommend if you are in need of a great acting coach.

I loved working with Frank on my audition for Ray Donovan. Frank is smart, funny and very concise, and a pleasure to work with! He was able to help me distill what the scenes were really about, and helped find comedy in a scene that I hadn’t yet discovered. Highly recommended! Did I mention I booked the job! Thanks Frank!

Hi, I am a beginning actor, just learning All of the basics. I decided to reach out to Frank Liotti because I had heard he was an amazing teacher. I met with him and immediately felt comfortable. He was so patient and so informative. I had no background and acting. He taught me so many techniques that help me audition for a number of different roles. I got a huge audition for the show, “Crashing” on HBO. It was for a pretty big part. I was very nervous about it. Once I met with Frank I felt totally confident and I went in and killed the audition. I don’t think I would’ve done that well if I hadn’t met with him and had him teach me. He also recently helped me with an audition that I had for an upcoming Judd Apatow film. The audition went amazing. I cannot say enough about Frank. If you’re looking for an incredible acting coach/teacher, he is the best out there.

Frank was truly the best! I booked multiple roles after working with him. I starred in my own sitcom pilot for CBS and Frank was my on set coach and got me to a place i never thought i could get to. I have confidence going into any audition now and just signed a multi year deal with Comedy Central that i attribute almost solely to Franks coaching. If you’re looking to break into tv and film and make acting your career, i can’t think of anyone better than Frank.

I would never have had the guts and skills to do my first dramatic role without Frank’s coaching. He is patient, understands the level and advice one needs, and has a breadth of knowledge that I still find staggering to believe. I have him on speed dial. I can’t thank him enough for helping me feel prepared and full as an actor.

Frank works with my 13 year old daughter regularly. She has worked with various teachers in NYC and he is by far the absolute best! My daughter leaves every lesson thrilled with what he has taught her and feeling completely empowered in her craft.
