The COVID-19 pandemic has rearranged many workplaces around the world. Television and film are no exception. For more than a year, late-night talk show hosts, The Kid Mero and Desus Nice, have recorded their hit show from home. However, that is all going to change in the coming weeks.
Tonight, Showtime welcomed Desus & Mero back to their newly revamped studio for the first time in 15 months. While it will take some time for a live audience to funnel in and their in-person chemistry to reach its peak, the two are ready to work in person once again. Also, Desus Nice explains that it will make things easier for the production crew that makes everything happen behind the scenes.
“The way we work, sometimes we go for hours and go on rants and you don’t want to cut the camera because you’ve got to load in the next show,” he told Deadline.
“The beauty of it means that we don’t have to break down the set, it’s always there so that means you can do digital shoots or change things. It’s our space and we can do whatever we want there. It’s our petri dish so we can try things out and when you remove the time stipulation, that allows more creativity to work.”
