Duo Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, who founded one of the decade’s top comedy brands with their podcast bodega boys And the show, named after him on Showtime, is well and truly done.
Dessus and Mero, better known as Danielle Baker and Joel Martinez respectively, have arguably the biggest podcast for Hollywood crossovers in the industry. Having entered podcasting with Complex TV Rumors Vs. my podcasts and bodega boysThe pair had a show on Viceland from 2016 to 2018 before getting on a Showtime late-night series that would take them into the mainstream.
“Desus Nice and The Kid Mero will make separate creative endeavors going forward,” Showtime said in a statement Monday evening. Showtime’s late-night talk show Rumors and Mero Will not return for the fifth season. Its final episode aired on Thursday, June 23.
Showtime’s confirmation came after days of speculation over his status. The TV series was only 15 episodes long before it went dark (the last season had over 50 episodes), and the podcast was essentially dropped—the last episode aired in November. last month, Dessus assures “bodegahiv”“That” art is coming back. But last week, Mero clearly commented On a social post that it ended: “The podcast is back catalog enjoy my pals.” on Friday, Desas repliedTweeting “Hive deserves better than this ending.”
No one seems happy with a breakup. bodegahive is melting on Twitter, and Showtime lost a big fat hit that managed to bring in President Barack Obama and President Joe Biden (while he was running) as guests. After such a smash run, it is unlikely that the two will disappear from the public eye, but despite the catchphrases of both, the brand did not survive.
