Dinner for One

It has been a New Year’s tradition in Germany since 1972, and in other parts of Europe since then, including Austira, Switzerland, and as far as South Africa and Australia. It holds the Guinness World’s Record for most repeated single broadcast television show, and has a cult following across the world, although it is little-known in the United States. The full story of this wonderful sketch can be found here, but for now I present to you, “The 90th Birthday, or Dinner for One.” (The host begins in German, but the sketch itself is in English.)
