Here's some audio that shows why Doug E. Fresh's World's Greatest Entertainer moniker is fitting. I was recently speaking with Mr. Magic and we were discussing certain shows and interviews he did. Since it's all fresh on my mind, I figured I'd post some stuff here.Tweet
Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew- The Show (Live)-
You gotta love when Doug is doing call-and-response with the females in the audience and takes it as far as asking,
"Now, what's your number?"

Okay, enough already.
Here's an interview with Doug E. Fresh also aired that night, I believe in the latter half of 1985.

Doug E. Fresh always seems to give great interviews, and I feel like this one in particular is historically significant.

Doug addresses his thoughts on Rush Management, Dennis Bell (producer of "The Show"), dis records aimed at him, and more.
Finally, due to the Role Models reference in the title of this blog, I also feel the need to post this. I'm sure my buddy Nick Sinista will approve:
