Brian Jordan Alvarez manages to stand out during the era of self-made celebrity. He and his friends create hilarious yet relatable short YouTube videos that put entertainment value ahead of shallow clickability.
That's why it's no surprise that his new web series, The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo is an immediate hit. Joined by fellow budding talent, Stephanie Koenig, Jimmy Fowlie, Jon Ebeling, Ken Kirby, and Jason Greene, he explores the romantic entanglements of Los Angeles millennials with the perfect balance of humor and heart.
While playing cupid for his friends, Caleb Gallo struggles to navigate his own dating life. Meanwhile, his friends navigate one-night stands, shirtless dance parties, and spontaneous bisexuality.
Among an amazing ensemble, it's hard to pick a favorite. Greene is an instant star, portraying the fabulous gender fluid 'Freckle.' Koenig is a ginger bombshell with superior comedic timing. But it's Alvarez who manages to break out of his own comedic persona if only for a moment, displaying an emotional depth that serves as a cherry on top of his hilarious performance.
