Thomas was the host of the SABC1 reality competition talent show So You Think You're Funny!, from November 2008 to January 2009. The show stars comedian David Kau who is on a mission to find South Africa's top unsigned comedic talent.

In 2012 he produced and starred in the Vuzu reality series Forever Young, which follows him and fellow actors Siya Ngwekazi and Lungile Radu as they "follow their hearts and live in the moment in pursuit of their dreams".
