‘Desus & Mero: The Obama Interview’ Preview
Desus & Mero is Showtime’s pop culture, news, and comedy program where co-hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero give “their take on the day’s hot topics and chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more,” according to Showtime’s description.
This special episode will feature a sit-down interview with President Barack Obama. In the preview clip, Obama jokes around about being over-dressed for the interview. He also gives them some grief about their basketball skills. “Looks like y’all could play for the Knicks,” he said, which cracks the comedians up.
According to Showtime’s press release, Desus & Mero started when the two longtime acquaintances “reconnected online in the early days of Twitter, where they unleashed their potent personalities and found themselves kindred spirits. That led to stints on Complex and MTV, the Bodega Boys podcast, and a daily late-night show on Viceland, developing a feverish following.
“The quick-witted duo brings a distinct voice to late night, delivering smart and comedic commentary on any and all topics, that keeps audiences buzzing. Desus and Mero continue to host their long-running and wildly popular Bodega Boys podcast. Their life advice book, ‘God-Level Knowledge Darts: Life Lessons from the Bronx,’ was released by Random House on September 22, 2020, and made the New York Times Best Seller List.”
The show just finished up its second season with guests that included Davie Letterman, Missy Elliott, Penn Badgley, Lakeith Stanfield, Seth Meyers, and returning guest Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It has also already been renewed for a third season that will premiere in 2021.
Desus & Mero special sit-down interview with President Obama airs Sunday, December 13 at 11:05 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
