"Clown" (Greek script: "Κλόουν") was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, performed in Greek by Afroditi Frida.

The song was performed fourteenth on the night, following Denmark's Kirsten & Søren with "Ka' du se hva' jeg sa'?" and preceding Norway's Karoline Krüger with "For vår jord". At the close of voting, it had received 10 points, placing 17th in a field of 21.

The song is sung from the perspective of a clown, with Frida expressing her joy at amusing others. She sings, however, that "I have a heart" and makes mention of the fact that she is required to be positive in her job even when she does not feel that way.

It was succeeded as Greek representative at the 1989 Contest by Mariana with "To Diko Sou Asteri".
