You know you’re the hottest comedian in America when the MTV asks you to host the VMAs to relate to the kids.

Sebastian Maniscalco revealed he’ll have those honors at the end of this summer. The 2019 VMAs will go live Monday, Aug. 26, from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

“We’re thrilled to have the incredibly talented Sebastian Maniscalco as this year’s VMA host,” said Bruce Gillmer, exec producer of MTV VMAs. “Sebastian is on fire right now and his comedic spin on relatable topics will make this year’s show truly unforgettable.”
