Dinner for One
The same procedure as every year
What to do on a New Year’s Eve in Germany? Don´t miss the traditional comedy “Dinner for One”. It’s compulsory and “the same procedure as every year”.
Some facts about “Dinner for One”:
– The sketch was filmed in English (although you may run across a dubbed version – its been dubbed into the northern German dialect of Plattdeutsche for starters).
– In 2000, the sketch was colourized, and there was an big outcry about the tampering with the show. This version seems to have been quietly dropped now….
– 2003 was the 40th anniversary of the show, and Norddeutscher Runfunk (NDR) had some special programming to celebrate – including a half hour quiz show dedicated to the programme!
– Every year, numerous people have a “Dinner For One” party, and join in with the sketch – drinking the same toasts as Freddie…and happy new year!
