Desus Nice & The Kid Mero (aka: THE BODEGA BOYS) have been dominating the late-night game and podcast world. Desus & Mero turned their Bronx-born friendship into a growing brand starting with their podcast, The Bodega Boys, which helped them amass an enthusiastic following for their smart and comedic off-the-cuff musings on topics including pop culture, politics, sports, music, and everything in between. The duo stars in Showtime’s first ever weekly late-night talk show, Desus & Mero, which is currently airing its third season of noteworthy guests and memorable conversations. They released their first book in Spring 2020, God-Level Knowledge Darts: Life Lessons from the Bronx, which is a guide to what they have learned, after years in the Bronx streets, and subsequently conducted a successful Virtual Book Tour in the height of COVID.

Prior to their massively successful show with Showtime, Desus & Mero starred on the Viceland series, The Bodega Boys, hosting a late-night show of the same name as their weekly podcast. Previously, they appeared on Complex (Desus Vs. Mero) and MTV (Joking Off). The pair has been featured in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, Los Angeles Times, Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and New York Magazine. In 2015, Rolling Stone labeled them “Comedy’s Hottest Duo.” 

ASL interpretation will be available for attendees.

Parking is free on Park Avenue and Cathedral Street after 6pm. Parking is $5 in the Franklin Street Garage after 5pm.

This lecture is made possible by the Hackerman Foundation.
