If you’re ever having a bad day don’t watch The Office, Parks and Rec, or whatever the usual go to is, watch Desus and Mero. First of all it’s on Viceland, which is kind of the much cooler version of PBS. If the name already sounds familiar, it’s because it is the television channel offshoot of the media publication, Vice. Each show has its own uniqueness and is genuinely interesting, but by far the most fun is Desus and Mero. Being the standout show amongst titles like, Bong Appetite, F*ck That’s Delicious, Hate Thy Neighbor, Slutever, and What Would Diplo Do?, seems pretty difficult, but for this comedic duo it’s expected. They bring together all the crazy aspects of the different Viceland shows into their one daily talk show. So, if any of that sounds up your alley, peep the rest of this article.
Having been a follower of theirs since since my sophomore year of high school, I can say without a doubt that they are the two funniest people on television right now. They basically started the wave of people getting famous off twitter. Using the 140 characters as their platform, they built up their following to eventually go from podcast to webseries and now a full fledged television show on Viceland. Their series on Youtube, although no longer in use, still exists under the title, Desus versus Mero.
The television show is hilarious but those videos on youtube are what started it all for me, especially the hashtags. Here you have two best friends, both from the Bronx, looking at the news, and making it unbelievably funny. That’s the magic of the show, not only are you getting a good laugh, you’re actually being caught up on the news. Whether its about Trump’s latest antics or the Westminster Dog Show, you’ll be up to speed with everything going on in the world. From the beginning they’ve made it clear that no topic is off limits, poking fun at everything from Russel Westbrook’s style to Jeff Sessions’s ears, nothing is too weird for them and at often times, the weirder the better.

Imagine a more hip The Daily Show but with all the freedom that comes with being on Viceland. Oh and not to mention my favorite addition to the television show: the life-size, stuffed bear they call Juicebox. He is the patron saint of the show and is also sponsored by Timberland. It’s the absurdity of something like Juicebox that makes the show so unique. How they can be so consistently funny amazes me, and often times, you sit there and wonder how could this actually be their job.
From politicians and journalists to comedians and actors, they got something for everybody. Here’s a short list of just a few of the illustrious guests they’ve hosted: Erykah Badu, Spike Lee, T-Pain, Seth Rogen, Chadwick Boseman, Soledad O’ Brien, and most recently Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. These are only a few of the hundreds of guests they’ve had over the past two years, and each one is as interesting as the next. The best part about it is they are always asked to share some words of wisdom on the imaginary Rainbow. At the end of the day, this show is just two best friends talking as if they were in their local bodega. How could it possibly go wrong?
If you still need more incentive, here you go.
You can stream all the episodes using your TV cable provider info at Viceland or you can tune into their podcasts, Bodega Boys, on Apple Music, Soundcloud, and Youtube.
