Two Bronx residents see success in comical podcast

Two Bronx natives are making a name for themselves as an online comic duo.



Desus Nice and The Kid Mero gained a popular following on Twitter and then through their comical podcast Bodega Boys. The podcast pokes fun at pop culture, celebrities and life in the Bronx. 



Before the podcast, Desus worked as a financial writer and Mero as a teaching aide. The two often complained about their jobs, taking to Twitter to vent in comical ways. 



Now, the duo are cast members on MTV2's Guy Code and Uncommon Sense.
