Dave Thomas is a comedian and actor. He was born in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada and first achieved fame as a cast member of the Canadian syndicated comedy show SCTV, where he portrayed, among other characters, "Doug" of Bob and Doug McKenzie fame.

Other memorable characters included angry, if succinct editorialist Bill Needle, Scottish scone-chef/bluesman Angus Crock, speedy ad announcer Harvey K-Tel, Lowery organist/curio pitchman Tex Boil and the inimitable "Cruising Gourmet".

He is the brother of Canadian singer-songwriter Ian Thomas.
