After 10 years of working together, Desus and Mero have fallen victim to breakup rumors. The comedy duo consisting of Desus Nice (Daniel Baker) and The Kid Mero (Joel Armogasto Martinez) have been around for nearly a decade and during that time they have collaborated on multiple creative projects including podcasts and television shows. The two were recently granted another season for Desus & Mero on Showtime but the network has not announced an air date at this time.
A Desus and Mero fan-run Instagram account posted a screenshot of the two comedians going back and forth with one another. In June, Desus tweeted, “bodegahive you think I abandoned y’all but the art is coming back. Plz believe in me, I love y’all.”
More recently, Mero took to Reddit to express frustration at this comedic partner, “NAH IT’S A WRAP BRODY, SOMEBODY MENTIONED DUDE TWEETING THAT FROM SOME COUNTRY AT LIKE 3AM. I TOURED WITH DUDE FOR YEARS HE WAS FUBAR AND IN HIS BAG. PODCAST DONE ENJOY THE BACK CATALOG MY PALS.”
Desus responded by tweeting, “I tried ya’ll.”
