Of the late night shows that are on right now attempting to do comedy and satire about the times we’re living in, we’ve been sincerely missing the takes of Desus & Mero who have taken a bit of a hiatus. Even in the more tense times, both Desus Nice and The Kid Mero have managed to stay true to themselves, honestly comment/riff on the moment we’re living in, and somehow find their way to punchlines and tags.
So, we’re glad to hear that Desus & Mero are coming back to Showtime on July 5th (even though we wish they were back sooner). They’ll still be going twice a week, but they’re moving their schedule to Sundays and Thursdays, FYI.
We were already enjoying how they were handling doing their show in quarantine (they officiated a wedding remotely) and we can’t wait to see what they’ll do with the uprising for Black Lives Matter and against police brutality.
