This clown is no ma, technically, but Barry Lubin plays it strictly for laughs. The clown known as Grandma, a former cabbie and onetime TV director hopeful, has become instead a highlight of the Big Apple Circus. How did he become a grandma in 1975? "Out of desperation,'' Lubin says in this video
. "I knew my grandmothers very well.''
