Dave Thomas


B: May 20, 1949 in St.Catharines, Ontario

Dave Thomas was born in St. Catharines, Ontario but he spent quite a few of his formative years growing up in North Carolina. He also spent some time living in England which, according to him, gave his sense of humour that unique cross between slap stick, and standup American and the so-called “black humour” of the British. It was this complicated package that returned to Hamilton to attend McMaster University where he graduated with a master`s degree in English literature.
