Playboy After Dark is an American television show hosted by Hugh Hefner. It aired in syndication through Screen Gems from 1969 to 1970 and was taped at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.


Playboy After Dark followed much the same style as Hefner's earlier show, Playboy's Penthouse (1959-1960), which had been taped at WBKB-TV in Chicago. The show portrayed a "typical" party at Hefner's place, complete with Playboy Playmates and celebrities, who would then chat with Hefner and perform for the party. Guests included Joe Cocker, Ike & Tina Turner, Sammy Davis Jr. Buddy Rich, Harry Nilsson, The Grateful Dead, Moms Mabley, Deep Purple, Fleetwood Mac, Three Dog Night, Steppenwolf, Grand Funk Railroad, James Brown, Iron Butterfly, Linda Ronstadt and others.[2]

The first episode features Sally Marr, mother of Lenny Bruce who had appeared on Playboy's Penthouse ten years earlier.
