Dinner for One

(YouTube link)

Every New Year in Germany and Scandinavia, it’s a tradition to watch Dinner for One, a comedy sketch written by British author Lauri Wylie for the theater in the 1920s. It’s also known as The 90th Birthday, or Der 90. Geburtstag. In the routine, Miss Sophie has outlived her friends, so her butler plays the part of each at the birthday dinner, which means he must drink multiple toasts! It’s one of 6 New Year Traditions from Around the World at mental_floss. Link

"Grevinnen og Hovmesteren" in Norway. This is just awesome, WATCH IT! The funny thing is, it was written by a British, but is almost completely unknown in Britain. And the tiger carpet was added in the very last minute, and the stumbling was complete accident!
