We’re featuring writer, director and actor Jordan Firstman, who is creating viral content on Instagram with his “impressions” (such as Banana Bread’s Publicist) and “secrets.” Take it away, Jordan…

What to Watch: For TV, I May Destroy You. Michaela Coel is a true artistic genius. Such truth, depth, humor and humanity.

For film, Alex In Wonderland is a completely slept on Paul Mazursky film starting a very young, very sexy Donald Sutherland. Also watch my film Call Your Father on Criterion Channel. Many have said, “This is hard to watch but I’m glad I did.”

What to Read: I just read Life Isn’t Everything: Mike Nichols, which I loved.

What to Follow: Me of course! As well as comedians Chloe Fineman, Meg Stalter, Ziwe Fumudoh, and Syndee Washington.

What to Try: Don’t sleep on natural wines for a second longer. If your wine has sulfates in it, you are just not living to your full potential.

What to Listen to: The comedy podcast Dear Joan and Jericha. Julia Davis and Vicki Pepperdine are the best improvisers alive. For music, Jessie Ware’s new album What’s Your Pleasure is my new gay disco heaven.
