So far, Zhuber has worked with well-known directors such as Dimiter Gotscheff, Wolf-Dietrich Sprenger, Jorinde Dröse, Erik Gedeon and Robert Wilson. Zhuber had an unusual venue in the 1998/99 season at the Thalia Theater: the staging of the 90- minute monologue Bartsch, Kindermörder by Oliver Reese (director: Stephanie Kunz) took place in the theatre's freight elevator. In the episode Traces of an Invisible Woman from the series Der Alte, Helmut Zhuber made his television debut in 1983. Since 2001 he has been a regular guest on the screen, often in crime series such as The Men from K3 , Tatort , Bella Block or SOKO Wismar , but also in literary adaptations such as Das Feuerschiff based on the novel by Siegfried Lenz or in the role of the National Socialist school principal Hinrich Wriede Negroes, Negroes, chimney sweeps! , the autobiography of Hans-Jürgen Massaquois.
