The Bronx-born Desus and Washington Heights-born Mero have ended their Showtime late-night program, “Desus & Mero,”
“Desus Nice and The Kid Mero have made a name for themselves in comedy and in the late-night space as quick-witted cultural commentators,”
“Throughout its run, the series won a WGA Award, received Critics’ Choice nominations and scored interviews with President Barack Obama, President Joe Biden, Derek Jeter, Missy Elliott, Denzel Washington, Charlize Theron, David Letterman, Yo-Yo Ma and many more.
“They have been brilliant hosts, and we wish them the best, along with the team at JAX Media and the incredible crew.”
The “Desus & Mero” show ran for four seasons on Showtime, with the last episode airing on June 23.
The comedy duo got their start as podcast hosts had a talk show on Viceland before beginning their run on Showtime in 2019.
Known as the “Bodega Boys,” the 41-year-old Desus, whose real name is Daniel Baker, and 39-year-old Mero, whose real name is Joel Martinez, interviewed Obama in 2020
Their interview with Jeter aired last month.
