"I didn't realize it was possible to have this much fun sitting up! "

Hugh Hefner was a fine choice for this second roast, following the opener with Ronald Reagan. Like most of the roasts from this one season, it's quite short, featuring just six guests on the dais, beginning with Billy Baxter, a forgotten British comic who nevertheless gets off some good quips, particularly about the 4th of July ('we lost a whole country, there's nothing to celebrate'). Howard Cosell describes Hef as "the biggest nothing I have ever seen," while Audrey Meadows discusses the advantages of Playboy: "he just wants to give girls who can't afford clothes a job." Best of all is Jackie Gayle, making his debut in this roast, followed by Dick Martin, demonstrating why he was funnier with Dan Rowan. Bringing up the rear is Joey Bishop, paying his respects to a "smut peddler," who shows us Hefner's little black book, full of names and addresses- all guys! Joey also reveals Hef's secret desire for...Totie Fields? Hugh Hefner was always a good sport, and why not, with all his success?
