This short gem features Louis "Leibele" Waldman playing three different parts - first an old-world Eastern European, then a German, each auditioning to be the synagogue cantor. Displeased with what they've heard and unable to agree, the synagogue committee is visited by Leibele's agent who offers them a third alternative: a modern an American Chazan, with "pep and jazz," who can do Kol Nidre with a "two-step" and Netaneh Tokef with a "black bottom."
