Stokes and the City: The Art of Dating Yourself in Edmonton | Explore Edmonton

Meet local Edmonton comedian-artist Caroline Stokes. Her beloved characters Doug Carl and Wendy with a Smile (to name a few) also want it. While she loved performing on stage, she found a niche for celebrating talent online and “normalizing embarrassment” with her well-intentioned movement series #Carolinsidebyside. During the epidemic, her passion made national news and is widely shared because people are comfortable with her funny, lively and colorful content – watch her remakes of The Queen’s Gambit and The Handmaid’s Tale! Whether she’s live or behind the camera, one thing is for sure … it has to be kind.

No matter how you explore, keep physical distance, frequent hand washing and following guidelines to keep everyone safe.
