Desus Nice & Kid Mero met in passing during summer school in the Bronx. They reconnected online after they began amassing Twitter followers based on tweets covering their mutual dissatisfaction for their jobs.
Their social media complaints, dotted with funny pop culture commentary drew a crowd and eventually became the starting point for a web video series for Complex Magazine (“Desus Vs. Mero,”), a brief stint with MTV and their current hit podcast “The Bodega Boys.”
