||Presenter, Actor, Comedian
Sy Thomas is an actor, presenter, and stand-up comedian. His versatility, likeability, and deft comedic flair, have seen him gain an extensive and hugely varied list of credits and experience.
Sy burst into the world of presenting at kids TV channel Nickelodeon, where he fronted all of the channel's live studio projects and continuity for nearly 2 years. He then went on to write and present two series of CITV’s much-loved gadgets and games show ‘The Cool Stuff Collective’.
As well as gathering a whole host of further presenting roles, Sy also became something of an accidental adventurer when he and fellow stand-up Alexis Dubus drove 4000 miles through Africa in a car they bought for £100 – their epic journey being documented in the award-winning film ‘End of the Road’.
As a stand-up comedian Sy regularly performs throughout the UK and is in demand as both an act and compere. In 2013 he supported Marcel Lucont on tour; hosted the comedy stage at ‘End of the Road Festival’; and took his first solo venture Sy+’ to Edinburgh festival, which Three Weeks awarded 5 stars and called “Brilliantly entertaining!” His first full-length show “Jumper” garnered brilliant reviews and “Recommended Show” from Fringe Review in 2015.
Sy is also one half of sketch double-act ‘Life of Si’ alongside comedian (and flatmate) Simon Feilder, who together have performed 2 full length festival shows; have written a sitcom pilot as an extension of their vast catalogue of online videos; and have racked up numerous acting credits as a duo – most recently as inept traffic police in Channel 4s hugely popular Epsom Derby promos.
Sy's wide-ranging acting skills have also featured in a wealth of comedic roles, including as a TV Producer of a disastrous German Pop Show in BBC1’s ‘Richard Hammond’s Secret Service’; as anarchic time traveller Archie in CBBC’s 13 part sitcom ‘The Revolting World of Stanley Brown’, and as a geeky 1980s tour guide in Channel 4’s ‘Countdown – Mash-Up’ show.
