Countess LuAnn de Lesseps cured her post-breakup blues with comedy, recently graduating from an improv class in New York, has exclusively learned.

After her steamy three-year relationship with Jacques Azoulay ended, the Real Housewives of New York City star started a Level 1 class at People's Improv Theater.

“She came to The PIT before with Bravo --  but she returned on her own to take the 8-week class because she thought it was fun,” her improv instructor Jamie Cummings exclusively told Radar.

“She fit right in – and was pretty funny.”

During the final class performance on Dec. 17, the “Money Can’t Buy You Class” singer tickled everyone’s funny bone during a sketch in which she played a “stoned pizza worker.”

“She was really in character. The skit was actually her idea,” Cummings revealed about LuAnn, who is currently signed on for Season 6 of RHONY.


During the Dec. 17 show, LuAnn gushed about the experience and posted a photo of her class.

“Having so much fun at my first improv show,” she wrote on Twitter.

In September, Luann was joined by her co-star Carole Radziwill for their first entry into performing comedy. Other ladies from the Housewives franchise – and of course Bravo cameras -- were on hand for the evening as they poked fun of their royal titles and much more.

The comedy routine is set to air during the upcoming season, sources confirmed to Radar.
