Dinner for One

Every New Year’s Eve millions of people all over Germany sit down to watch an 18 minute British comedy sketch called Dinner for One. 

It holds the Guinness World Records for the number of repeats having been shown on German TV every year since 1972.

Many people also enjoy this festive slapstick, by British Comedian Freddie Frinton in Denmark, Sweden and a number of other European countries. In Germany a stamp has even been issued in his honour.

Frinton plays a butler who helps his employer Miss Sophie celebrate her 90th birthday by impersonating long dead guests and downing their drinks until he is very tipsy.

This year it will be shown on British TV on New Years Eve by Sky.
