Ariana Grande is trying to tickle fiancé Pete Davidson’s funny bone…by becoming a stand-up comic of her own!

“Between songs, Ariana loves talking with her audience, and now she’s going to try to make them laugh a little, thanks to Pete,” sources told Naught Gossip’s Straight Shuter.

The 24-year-old SNL star has even given Grande, 25, a few jokes to add to her act.

Ariana adores Pete and thinks he is one of the all-time comedy greats which is why he is helping her find her funny bone.”

Davidson will likely tame down his profane and controversial style when he teaches his wife-to-be. And he’ll probably stay away from quips like the one he made shortly after the bombing at Grande’s concert in Manchester, England, joking that “Britney Spears didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert.”

That joke led to backlash from Grande fans, who questioned why she was with the controversial comedian.

Still, when it comes to finding some funnies to put in her act, Grande doesn’t have to look far.

“It is not unusual for performers to hire comics to help punch up their acts,” the source concluded. “But why would Ariana hire someone when she’s living with one of the best?”
