Dinner For One

There’s a little New Year’s Eve tradition that has become cult in Germany and I’d love to share it with you.

It’s a little, 10 minute TV sketch called “Dinner For One” or sometimes also “The 90th Birthday”.

Dinner For One was recorded in 1963 for Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) and features Freddie Frinton as Butler James and May Warden as Miss Sophie.

On NYE, this sketch is repeated every few minutes on the telly. Basically, if you’re German, you’ll watch it at least once during the night’s festivities.

“The same procedure as every year, James!”

ENJOY and Happy New Year to you all!
