I love watching the ice skaters at Wollman Rink, and I mean watching — not skating. Ice skates on Grandma may look hilarious but that’s only because of the intense pain I am experiencing.

Barry Lubin made his debut as Grandma in 1975 with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. For 25 circus seasons since then, Grandma has toured the world as the face of the Big Apple Circus.
