Comedian Robert Wuhl is probably better known for his film roles or for his HBO series Arli$$, than he is for his stand up, though he's been at it for the bulk of his 30+ career. This changed somewhat in 2006 with the launch of Wuhl's brilliant Assume The Position with Mr. Wuhl, a hilarious history lecture (given to actual students) about the way history is created and treated by the culture at large (similar to pop culture or even entertainment). HBO aired a 2 part version of the show and it was well received enough that Wuhl followed it up in 2007 with a second installment.Because anything that can be done twice should be done thrice, Wuhl is now developing a third installment, and this weekend, you can catch the workshop version at the lovely El Portal Theater in NoHo. He's performing tonight at 8 PM and tomorrow afternoon at 3.

Assume the Position 3
El Portal Theater, 5267 Lankershim Blvd., NoHo
