Rob RiggleIf the past few days of snow and cold are any indication, most of the country is probably not enthusiastic about going outside until July. But being hermits doesn’t mean we don’t want entertainment, right?

Luckily, some new comedy is heading our way on Jan. 21, and no one has to leave the comforts of home. HP is presenting an online live improv comedy show called “ePrint Live,” hosted by Rob Riggle and starring members of the Upright Citizens Brigade. Viewers can submit feedback and scene suggestions by emailing an onstage HP printer – it’s like Improv 2.0.– with corporate sponsors, product placement and cross promotions!

If you want in on the action, you’ll have to head over to YouTube from 3pm-5pm EST next Friday, Jan. 21.

But there’s more: if your suggestion is selected, a video of the skit will be sent back to you to share with all your friends.  And get this: You can continue to suggest scenes after the show is over– in fact, until Jan. 26. UCB members will create additional online comedic shorts based on some of the public’s suggestions.
