Desus & Mero are the perfect example of how hard work, creativity and talent can get you to where you need to be in life. Beginning with their hilarious commentary on Twitter, the comedic duo has made their way from Complex to late night television. While the road has not always been easy, the two have stuck through the hard times and continued to deliver whenever they’ve been on the big stage. Currently, the New York tandem are enjoying their first season on Showtime. The show has already featured everyone from Stacey Abrams to Lil Nas X. With the show off and running, some have elected to give the duo their flowers while they can still smell them.
The Webby Awards has announced that they will be honoring Desus & Mero with a Special Achievement Award at this year’s ceremony. Set to take place on May 13th, the two will be honored alongside Michael Douglas, Donald Glover, Issa Rae, Tierra Whack Jimmy Fallon, Will Smith, Kesha and a few more this year. With their show set to air the same day as the ceremony, it’s unclear if they will be in attendance. Either way, the duo deserve it for all of their contributions to internet culture. The brand is stronger than ever.
