Early years and career[edit]

Thomas attended Aberystwyth University, Wales, where he studied drama from 1998 to 2001 and received a BA upper second.[citation needed]

In 2005, Thomas took part in a documentary film with Alexis Dubus about the Plymouth to Banjul Challenge. The project involved buying a car for £100 and attempting to drive it 4,000 miles through seven countries and the Sahara Desert before auctioning it off for local charities in the Gambia.[2] He has referred to this as a life-changing experience.[3]

In 2006 he started presenting comedy characters on Nickelodeon which led to a full presenting role on ME:TV and the UK Kids' Choice Awards in 2007.

Thomas is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with his comedy partner Simon Feilder.[4][5]

Thomas appeared in a viral Vodafone campaign alongside Lewis Hamilton [6][7]
