Hailing from Newfoundland, Greg has been a part of the comedy scene there for years as a writer and performer with the comedy troupe CODCO and in his own right as an actor and playwright. His comic achievements have been honoured with numerous Gemini Awards.

He played the role of Brother Glackin in the film The Boys of St. Vincent. His original stage play Hanlon House, which was first produced by the Resource Centre for the Arts in St. John's, went on to be produced as a short film, winning the Best Short Film award at the Atlantic Film Festival in 1992. Hanlon House was aired on CBC-TV's Arts program later that year.

In 1992, he began to work with Cathy Jones, former co-stars Rick Mercer and Mary Walsh to create a new television series, which became This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Thomey played anchorperson Frank MacMillan and created many memorable characters such as Jerry Boyle (a Newfoundland separatist) and Eddie from "That Show Sucked". He left the show in 2005.

In addition to his work on 22 Minutes, in 1996 Thomey also starred in a six-part series called Daily Tips for Modern Living that aired on CBC TV.
