Is that German &/or Yiddish he's mixing with English?

Yep. [I've found the video completely coincidentally; but the guy who does the singing and joking is the same guy who plays in the 1937 "The Cantor's Son" movie, along with Moishe Oisher, the famous Bessarabian-born Jewish cantor ... of whom none of You gents over here has ever heard about :p , but that's OK :-) ].

Not only Moishe Oisher, but the great Baal Shem Tov also, is connected with this particular part of the world which we call Bessarabia.

The Jewish national anthem, >HaTikva<, is also played on the melody of a Romanian doina, called 'Chart With Ozen'.
