DESUS NICE & THE KID MERO (aka: THE BODEGA BOYS) are quickly taking over the podcast world and late-night game. The comedians and podcasters rose to prominence when the former Bronx schoolmates reconnected on Twitter. As they were building their own followings, the two shared an affinity for complaining about their dissatisfaction for their jobs, coupled with pointed and funny pop culture commentary.
The re-connection of the quick-witted duo led to stints on Complex(Desus Vs. Mero) and MTV (Joking Off), their current podcast The Bodega Boys, and a daily critically-acclaimed late-night show on Viceland—all while continuing to amass an enthusiastic following for their smart and comedic off-the-cuff musings on life’s greatest topics.
Their new weekly late-night show Desus & Mero premiered on Showtime in February, marking the network’s first late-night program. Recently, Desus & Mero contributed their voices to Ezra Koenig’s (Vampire Weekend) animated Netflix series Neo Yokio and Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas, alongside Jaden Smith, Susan Sarandon and Jude Law. In addition, they have an untitled ‘life advice’ book from Random House coming in 2019.
