The first guest for Desus & Mero‘s upcoming Showtime series (the first-ever late night show on the network) has been announced.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will join the duo for a Bronx takeover!
The series will premiere on Thursday, February 21 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT and air on Thursdays. In the first episode, the duo will “visit the Congresswoman’s new offices in D.C. determined to make her feel at home, as well as give their take on the day’s hot topics in their signature style in front of a small live studio audience.”
Other upcoming guests on the show will include John Legend, Vince Staples, Ben Stiller, Issa Rae, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Pusha T.
The show’s official description: Longtime acquaintances Desus Nice (Daniel Baker) and The Kid Mero (Joel Martinez) 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.
