An older Lady is having a birthday again and has invited four guests: Sir Toby, Lord Pommeroy, Admiral von Schneider and Mr. Winterbotton. The only problem is that the four have passed away long ago, and so the butler ...展开has to step in and help drinking all the sherry, wine and champagne served with the birthday dinner. He does a very good job on this and it seems that he also did a very good job for all the four guests after the dinner (upstairs).
Shown on new years eve in many countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Austria. In Norway however it's shown the 23rd of December instead of new years eve.
While both the actors in the sketch and dialogue are in English, the UK remains one of the few countries in Europe where the sketch is totally unknown. It's never been shown on TV in Britain.
