He has performed at numerous live comedy gigs, including the successful 99% Zulu Comedy Show in Durban.

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".

In 2015 he hosted the Mzansi Magic reality series Love Back, based on the premise that someone who has lost the love of their life can get a shot at winning their heart back.

Beginning in July 2016 he was one of the three co-hosts of the MTV video clip show Ridiculousness Africa, with Basketmouth and Boity Thulo.
