After several years of stand-up comedy, Wuhl had roles in movies including Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman (as reporter Alexander Knox) with Michael Keaton, Bull Durham with Kevin Costner, Cobb with Tommy Lee Jones, Mistress with Robert De Niro and Good Morning, Vietnam with Robin Williams. His first role in movies was a starring role in the 1980 comedy The Hollywood Knights along with other fledgling actors Tony Danza, Michelle Pfeiffer and Fran Drescher. He wrote two of the six episodes for the TV series Police Squad! in 1982, and did an audio commentary for its release on DVD in 2006. He also had a small role in the 1983 film Flashdance.
Wuhl was in the beginning of the music video to Madonna‘s 1985 hit “Material Girl.”
In 1992, he appeared in The Bodyguard as host of the Oscars. In reality he won two Emmy Awards for co-writing the Academy Awards in 1990 & 1991 with Billy Crystal.
From 1996 to 2002 he wrote and starred in the HBO series Arli$$ as the title character, an agent for high-profile athletes. From 2000 to 2001, he was a frequent panelist on the ESPN game show 2 Minute Drill, often quizzing the contestants on sports-related movies. Wuhl was a player in the Game Show Network‘s Poker Royale series, a competition between pros and comedians. In 2006, he starred on HBO in a one-man-show, Assume the Position with Mr. Wuhl, where he taught a history class to show how history is created and propagated in a similar fashion to pop culture. A second chapter entitled Assume the Position 201 with Mr. Wuhl aired on HBO in July 2007. Wuhl is currently developing a stage adaptation of “Assume the Position” at Ars Nova in New York City.
Robert currently stars on his own radio show The Robert Wuhl Show talking sports.
Thanks to Night of 100 Stars, Norby Walters and the great staff for a wonderful night full of stars… Hollywood’s #1 Awards Night Gala.
On one night each year, Hollywood’s most prestigious movie industry awards show is televised to the world. It’s a night when constellations of stars come out of their Brentwood, Beverly Hills and Bel Aire estates to support their peers and participate in the spectacle.
Anyone who is someone is out to see and be seen, a stellar mix of TV and movie actors, moguls and media, producers, paparazzi and assorted glitterati. It’s also
a night where, under the spotlights of the exclusive Beverly Hills Hotel, hundreds of Hollywood’s brightest converge in limousines, wave at the cameras, walk the red carpet, and enter the most exclusive, high-profile awards night gala event of the year – Night of 100 Stars — hosted by legendary agent Norby Walters.
