A North Jersey podcaster and his longtime acquaintance who went viral with their hilarious takes on everything from news to pop-culture will be hosting Showtime's first late-night talk show premiering in 2019.
Bronx personalities Joel Martinez (The Kid Mero) -- who has lived in Fair Lawn, Paramus and Tenafly -- and Desus Nice (Daniel Baker) officially joined forces in 2012 for a COMPLEX web video series “Desus Vs. Mero."
That led to their wildly successful podcast "The Bodega Boys," and groundbreaking late-night Viceland show. "Desus & Mero," which ended in June.
** Watch Desus & Mero tackle topics such as the IHOb Saga, Viral Real Estate Agent, Corny Proposal (WARNING: Explicit) **
Martinez and Baker appeared at the New York Comedy Festival on Sunday.
They will continue the Bodega Boys podcast while delivering hilarious and spontaneous commentary on Showtime.
