Who else nearly landed a role in the franchise? Watch now. When do you know that you've hit the big time? Struggling comedian, Derek, has started a writing job at a top-rated nightly comedy show and his career appears to be secure, but he's unfulfilled. He isn't making the type of comedy that he loves. After a serendipitous late-night interaction with an unassuming fan, Derek finds an outlet for his comedy by doing stand-up bits in the subway.
These bits are filmed by his subway audience, and posted on Youtube, Facebook, distributed through Snapchat. In the subway he is free to say what he wants and what he thinks people need to hear. He doesn't hold back on politics, race, or gender, and for his commentary he faces verbal and sometimes physical abuse. Neither stop him from always being authentic, funny, and thought provoking. Derek puts his job and personal relationships on the line to be the artist he must be. Derek is Funny is a feature film about the struggling artist who won't sell out, even when the most sought-after television deal is Written by Reid Arnstein.

You remember the Merman, yes? Like watching Roger Federer hit his one-handed backhand. Like seeing Neil Armstrong step onto the moon in a Dior leather stocking boot. And it is. This very Brooklyn loft used to have a skateboard half-pipe, a communal table, a mud room, and a goat. There was an epic orgy here with Hansel.
And Derek. And a Maori tribesman. And a sherpa.
And Finnish dwarfs. But Zoolander has returned. This is actually happening. We were on our own—both in the fashion world and with the studio, too. I would have liked to get Karl. I came close. He is dressed in a pair of Adidas sneakers, dark jeans, and a Cadet navy jacket. Something unique This is the third book I have read by Derek Haines, and clearly he is working on developing a unique style. His ability to convey the depth of this witty and intricate story in a very easy, and unadorned style, makes February the Fifth a most enjoyable read.

I recognised this when I read Milo Moon, but in this book I think he has really found his mark. Endearing you to his characters without long passages of description keeps the story moving at a pace. He seems to have a Something unique This is the third book I have read by Derek Haines, and clearly he is working on developing a unique style. He seems to have a particular liking for his character Snurd Humped though, as he gets more attention than most characters in descriptive passages.
The author simply used it as a pretext for telling a wonderful story about Feb, the main character. He used fantasy settings to invent wonderful names for his characters and to convey his very personal views on the world. Sometimes, he even becomes a gastronomic critic of the unreal! Derek Haines plays with some crazy ideas in his head and lets his vivid imagination go wild.
Very enjoyable! Feb 01, Eric Satchwill rated it really liked it. I wanted to do this without making comparisons to other books, I really did, but when it comes right down to it, my first impression of Derek Haines' new book February the Fifth is the one that stuck with me. You have the young fool who has no business being a success at anything, yet ends up being very important to the future of the Twelve Sun Systems of Gloth.
You I wanted to do this without making comparisons to other books, I really did, but when it comes right down to it, my first impression of Derek Haines' new book February the Fifth is the one that stuck with me. You also have the Supreme Potentate more-or-less stealing a ship in order to find the truth on a distant and wholly unremarkable planet. And, just to make things interesting, several puns revolving around the Gregorian calendar.
If you're anything like me, this all adds up to a fun and humorous story, perfect for making people question your sanity while you're giggling over it on the bus. Oct 22, Louis Singley rated it liked it. I grabbed this book based on a user review stating it was humorous and comparing it to the famous Hitchhiker's guide by Douglas Adams.
While it did start out as passably humorous it quickly devolved to odd names telling a fairly normal sci-fi story. The humor was sparse and mostly at the beginning of the story. It was still a decent read just not what I was expecting going into it. Sep 05, James Pailly rated it liked it. The beginning and ending were fantastic. The middle was a bit muddled.

There's nothing I love more than a comedic sci-fi or fantasy story except one that also manages to bring a sense of world building to the table. And February the Fifth manages to do all of those things and then some. The writing is witty and clever with an obvious influence of British humor a la Adams and Pratchett , but it's also unique.
Feb is a great character because he is a little stupid and he is quite awful to look at but that doesn't stop him from taking control of the situation he's There's nothing I love more than a comedic sci-fi or fantasy story except one that also manages to bring a sense of world building to the table. Feb is a great character because he is a little stupid and he is quite awful to look at but that doesn't stop him from taking control of the situation he's thrown into. I would love to listen to the rest of this series.
Persephone Rose was the perfect choice for this book. He manages to capture the characters and the humor perfectly. I hope he gets to do more dry humor type books.

February The Fifth by Derek Haines
So far he had a life without pressures or interesting tasks and there is really nothing he wants to change. His sisters April, May and June are worried what will become of him and so they should as of course there is an Rarely laughed so much: When February Gregorian the Fifth wakes up one morning just find out that his father August and two elder brothers March and October have vanished and he is next in line to become The Supreme Potentate of the twelve sun systems of Gloth he is not impressed. His sisters April, May and June are worried what will become of him and so they should as of course there is an unbelievable conspiracy on the way to change Gloth forever.
But you should never underestimate the powers of the Dodecahedron which gives every new Potentate the means to protect the rule of the Gregorians over Gloth. Thank goodness for Gregory the Thirteenth's Pope of Rome on Earth in the sixteenth century and later Supreme Potentate of the twelve sun systems of Gloth who had a lot of foresight about conspiracies.

A fantasy story full of funny turns and twists, unlikely heroes and life lessons well learned. I highly recommend reading it. Bisher hatte er ein Leben ohne grosse Zwaenge oder interessante Aufgaben und daran will er wirlich nichts aendern. Seine Schwestern April, May und June machen sich Sorgen was aus ihm werden wird und das sollten sie auch denn natuerlich gibt es da eine unglaubliche Verschoerung die Goth fuer immer veraendern wird. Dem Universum sei Dank fuer Gregor dem Papst in Rom im Jahrhundert und spaeter Supreme Potentate der zwoelf Sonnensysteme auf Goth, der eine Menge ueber Verschwoerungen geahnt hat.
Eine Fantasy Geschichte voller lustiger Wendungen, unwahrscheinlichen Helden und Lebens Lektionen, die wirklich gelernt wurden. Ich rate jedem es zu lesen. View 1 comment.
