Storyline

At the Star Wars bar, a bartender from Earth tries to explain baseball and Hank Aaron to one of his bizarre customers. A spaghetti western anti-hero ends up with too much anti- and not enough hero. The U.S. President proffers inoffensive double-talk at a news conference until the reporters bring up racial issues. A construction worker with a secret sings "I Gotta be Me." Mojo the Snake Handler proves even crazier than you'd expect from someone in his line. Two servicemen in the 1940s visit Club Harlem, one of them to propose to his old sweetheart, who is now a successful nightclub singer. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

The original cold opening featured Pryor telling the audience that he had not given up anything in order to have a network TV show. When the camera pulls back, Pryor is revealed to be naked but his genitals are removed. NBC ordered the opening to be deleted and it was replaced with the "Star Wars Bar" sketch. A shot of a shirtless Pryor from the deleted scene is shown after the opening sketch. See more »

Star Wars Bartender: Baseball, ugly. Baseball. Remember Hank Aaron? He hit 714. This is the ball he hit it with. Yeah, I know Garbink hit 4000. But he had a laser bat!
