HP has launched a live streaming comedy show on YouTube that is hosted by comedian Rob Riggle and will feature actors from the Upright Citizens Brigade.
The video series called HP ePrint Live calls on people to send in ideas for comedic skits.
Viewers can submit their ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. The accepted messages will print to one of the HP printers on stage. Riggle and the team of UCB Theater comedians will choose skit ideas and perform them live before millions of YouTube viewers. Submissions will be assembled into an ePrint gallery viewable on the live stream.
The show will be featured today on the homepage of YouTube. The live event begins at 3 p.m. ET and will be followed by five days (Jan. 22 – 26) of comedy shorts based on new ePrint submissions.
The two-hour live show will broadcast on the HP ePrint Live YouTube channel as well as the HP for Home Facebook page. Viewers also can participate for five days following the show, as suggestions will continue to be converted into original comedy shorts for viewing and sharing across online networks.
