Please Don't Hug Me is written and produced by TV writer, comedian, Sabotage Times columnist, sometime football journalist and all too often temporary office worker, Daniel Ruiz Tizon. He is joined every week by old school friend and 1980s school sprint champion Micky Boyd, who still believes in him. Each blames the other for the 13-year break in their friendship from 1990 to 2003.
Daniel has his new transitional hairstyle as he starts the long preparation for turning 40 in 2012 (41 years before his predicted death); Micky looks back at his nearly-trial with Chelsea back in '87; the ordeal of being a guest or host; Fat Man on a Couch Stuart Armstrong on his fear of becoming a regular anywhere; and an illicit meeting with an American culminating in a refusal to high five.
