Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre performer Shaun Diston also recently hosted a live, daytime talk show via Periscope.

The app, known as a place for asking to see the inside of strangers’ fridges, allows users to seamlessly create live broadcasts and interact with other users via a live commenting system.

The format is perfect for a Q&As. Could UCB’s use of Periscope lead to more livestreaming comedic content? Time will tell. In the meantime, one important question remains. What’s in the UCB fridge?
