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.'"

Fran Drescher Gets Frisky With Michael Voltaggio (VIDEO)

Top Chef Michael Voltaggio was on 'The Fran Drescher Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) to give Drescher some cooking lessons, one of which was how to make a maple syrup marshmallow. But he couldn't get a word in edgewise while he was trying to explain things to her.

"Are you paying attention to me," Voltaggio asked.

"I like it," Drescher said with a coquettish shrug. "Spank me."

Drescher also tried to use her portable Fran Cam to get some up close footage of the process, but she pointed it backwards, then aimed it Voltaggio. Finally, she remarked, "Sometimes, after the show, I'll make some watermelon martinis. What are you doing later?"

Oh Fran, you're really cookin' now.

Fans can be an excitable lot; they can go crazy when heir idol is nearby (here's three magic words to get three generations of girls excited: Sinatra, Beatles, Justin).

But who would have thought that The Nanny would get a young girl's heart pumping wildly. During Friday's 'The Fran Drescher Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox), Drescher talked to a very excited fan who nearly fainted when Fran invited her onstage to give her a hug.

"I'm your biggest fan," 19-year-old Kimberly said.

Do you watch 'The Nanny' on TV?" Drescher asked. It was a leading question.

"I know every episodes, I know every word in every episode," Kimberly responded. "You're so gorgeous and so tiny, oh my God," she summed up. Drescher was pretty happy herself. Nice way to start a show.

Fran Drescher Shows Off Her Haircutting Chops (VIDEO)

'The Fran Drescher Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) has begun its three-week trial run in six markets (Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Minneapolis and Orlando) and in addition to featuring the actress' trademark New York accent and wild laugh, the show is supposed to highlight her outspoken opinions on politics, Hollywood and whatever else comes to her wacky mind.

In a segment on Tuesday's show, Drescher challenged one of Jean Paul Mitchell's top stylists to a haircutting contest, dubbing it the "First Fran Cut-Off Competition."

"The last time I cut hair I charged $5 a haircut," Drescher announced at the outset, "so it's been awhile since I've done it." But since her audience was to determine the winner by applause, we kinda think the deck was stacked.

What do you think?
