Watch Sebastian Maniscalco open the 2019 MTV VMAs

Sebastian Maniscalco is one of the most popular stand-up comedians these days, having recently sold out Madison Square Garden. So MTV asked him to host this year’s Video Music Awards.

Of course, being a voice of the MTV Generation and speaking to kids who watch MTV and listen to pop music in 2019 are two different skill sets.

So how did Maniscalco do? It was all about that generation gap. Roll the clip!
