Here are comedian Steen Raskopoulos and actor Justin Rosniak in Australian comedy series Squinters.

The show, on the ABC, also stars Tim Minchin, Susie Youssef, Rose Matafeo and Sam Simmons.

It is based on the morning commute,  with the title coming because the drivers are squinting into the morning sun. Like Peter Kay’s Car Share, all the action takes places within vehicles.
