In 1977, Richard Pryor had a short-lived sketch comedy series called (surprisingly enough) The Richard Pryor Show. We only bring this up because one sketch featured Pryor as the bartender at the Star Wars Bar, riffing on characters from the cantina scene in Star Wars. The most amazing part about this sketch is that it features the original masks from the movie. (Warning: Since this is Richard Pryor, he had to throw in the N-word)

Oh, too funny. I love Richard Prior--I liked him paired with Gene Wilder best, I think, but very funny man.

Amazed he got to use so many of the costumes. Of course, that's before George realized the marketing potential. Liked the get a room part best.
