Whether performing as an actor, writer, producer or director, Robert Wuhl refers to himself as one thing -- a storyteller. This is never more illustrated than in his Award winning HBO Comedy Specials, Assume the Position with Mr. Wuhl, and Assume the Position 201 in which he lectures actual college students about the stories that made up American, and the Stories that America made up. The stage version of the two TV specials has toured across the country, from Boston to Los Angeles, from New York City to Phoenix.
In January 2013, Wuhls new play Hit-Lit, workshopped at the Quintero Theatre at the University of Houston, his alma mater. Hit-Lit is a mistaken-identity screwball comedy set in the publishing world. In March 2013, Hit-Lit moves to the Queens Theatre, in New York City for its World Premiere.
Robert was the creator and star of ARLI$$ from 1996 to 2002. During its seven seasons on HBO, ARLI$$, a satire of the world of professional sports, achieved a rare feat, growing in numbers each and every year, as it crossed the line between comedy and dramatic social commentary, presenting such issues as Domestic Abuse, Homosexuality, Ageism, Racism, Alcoholism, and Steroid abuse in sports.
Wuhl has also been critically praised for this work in films such as Bull Durham, Tim Burton's Batman, Good Morning Vietnam, Mistress, Blaze, and Cobb. In 1996, he directed, wrote, and starred in the independent feature, Open Season, a biting satire of the TV ratings system. Twice honored with Emmy Awards in 1991 and 1992 for writing the Academy Awards telecasts hosted by Billy Crystal, Wuhl also received CableAce Best Actor nominations in both drama for Tales from the Crypt, and comedy, for Arli$$. As a comedian, Robert starred in his own HBO Comedy Hour titled, Robert Wuhls WorldTour, and was a performer on Comic Relief.
But, in the beginning... after High School in Union, N.J., Robert headed to the University of Houston. Leaving Houston,, Wuhl returned to the east coast and began performing at The Improv in NYC, where he was put on stage by the clubs then-manager, Chris Albrecht. His routines were so well received that Rodney Dangerfield hired Wuhl to write jokes for him. It was also at the Improv where he met his future wife, Barbara Capelli, to whom he has been married for over thirty years. In 1979, Robert headed to Hollywood where he won the role of Newbomb Turk in the cult classic comedy, The Hollywood Knights, and became a writer for the critically acclaimed TV comedy Police Squad. The Robert Wuhl Show," a national radio sports and entertainment talk show for Westwood One, debuted in January 2011 and ran for one year.
Wuhl has also lent himself to a myriad of charitable causes including the Alzheimers Association of Los Angeles, the National Breast Cancer Coalition, St. Judes, Save the Music, Children Uniting Nations, and Heal the Bay.
