Larry King Always Wanted to be a Comedian: Making People Laugh Is 'Better Than Sex'On 'The Fran Drescher Tawk Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox), Fran welcomed Larry King, who's stepping down after 25 years of 'Larry King Live.' While talking with Fran, Larry revealed that what he loves most in the world is making people laugh -- not necessarily a wise thing to say to Fran Drescher, but okay.

Larry said that if he hadn't fallen into the world of TV and radio, he would have become a stand-up comedian. (Which is a dream he still has, by the way.) Mr. King expressed respect for the difficult task of being a stand-up comic. He added that when you step on a stage as a comedian, no one can help you: "There's the audience and there's you -- and they're saying 'Make me laugh.'"

The retiring talk show host then said: "When you can make [an audience] laugh, it's better than sex." Next, Fran unleashed her trademark braying cackle -- which perhaps caused Larry to regret his choice of words.
