James Franco is a funny guy.

The MTV VMAs are a pretty big thing every year and they are always finding new comedy acts to keep the show on the road.

This year they hit the nail on the head with James Franco, Iggy Azalea, and Nicki Minaj starring in a fake talk show.

Franco hosts the show as Dave Skylark, a made up television personality, and incessantly trolls the two female rappers by asking ridiculous questions and making fun of their songs.

The short preview is very funny and we can't wait to see the whole segment on Sunday night.

Watch the preview:

Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj have both released new music videos recently with Iggy's "Black Widow" coming out last week and Minaj's "Anaconda" which was released Tuesday.

TMinaj has no nominations this year while Azalea's "Fancy" has been nominated for many categories including the most prestigious, Video Of The Year.
