HP ePrint Live Featuring Actors From The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

HP will be broadcasting a first-of-its-a-kind, crowd-sourced LIVE comedy event on tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 21 from 3-5 p.m. ET hosted by comedian Rob Riggle and featuring actors from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (UCB Theatre).

HP ePrint Live will allow consumers participate in a live, online comedy event when they send in their ideas for skits via HP ePrint – viewers simply email their submission and the UCB cast will turn it into a performance. This is the first time consumers will be given the opportunity to inspire original content and simultaneously watch this content online through live streams.

Highlights Include :

— The two-hour live show, which will begin at 3 p.m. EDT on Friday, Jan. 21.

— Consumers are encouraged to email skit ideas in the form of pictures, poems, single words and drawings via ePrint to for a chance to watch their skit come to life. If their submission is selected, they will receive a link to their personal video via email. The skit will also be posted online at the HP ePrint Live YouTube channel and the HP for Home Facebook page.

— Consumers that submit skit ideas via HP ePrint will receive access to a special Best Buy HP Photosmart e-All-in-One sale during the campaign period (through Jan. 29).

— If a consumer’s skit idea is not chosen on Jan. 21, they can send in additional suggestions through Jan. 26. Members of the UCB Theatre will continue to accept ePrint submissions for performance during the custom comedy short period. Ideas chosen will be posted online at the HP ePrint Live YouTube channel and HP for Home Facebook page, as well as emailed to the sender. Each day will feature a different theme and setting, including the home (day 1), office (day 2), school (day 3), travel (day 4) and “anything goes” (day 5).

Until then, please be sure to follow HP on Twitter @HP_IPG and join the conversation at #ePrintLive! Let me know if you’d be so kind to share with your network on your blog/tweet/Facebook as we want to give Rob as many skit ideas as we can!

It’s going to be hilarious!
