Wuhl has been critically praised for his work in films such as Bull Durham, Batman, Good Morning Viet Nam, Mistress, Blaze, Cobb, and Hollywood Knights. In 1996, he directed, wrote, and starred in his own independent feature, Open Season, a hilarious and biting satire of the TV ratings system.
Wuhl was honored with Emmy Awards in '91 and '92, for writing the Academy Awards. He has also received a Cable Ace Best Actor nomination from the first season of Tales of the Crypt (Directed by Richard Donner).
As a comedian, Wuhl starred in his own HBO Comedy Hour titled Robert Wuhl's World Tour. Pushing the envelope on stand-up, the revue-style show made use of animation and special visual effects to underscore the stories Robert told on stage. He has performed stand-up in numerous prestigious venues around the country, including the early years of Comic Relief.
For the last seven years, Arli$$ has consumed Wuhl's creative life. As its creator, star, periodic writer and director, Wuhl works tirelessly to produce the quality programming that HBO's viewership demands. Work is good, he says, "I want to be a craftsman, to work consistently to produce a body of work which will be respected by my peers and, hopefully, the public." He allows himself a few pleasures during his rare free time: an occasional round of golf and Rotisserie baseball.
