Is Kylie Minogue funny? The photographer second from the left certainly seems to think she's mildly entertaining.

Kylie Minogue is to star in a new British TV comedy drama playing a character based on Andy Warhol's muse Edie Sedgwick.

The singer, who is said to be devoting more time to the acting side of her career, will appear in an edition of 'Playhouse Presents ...' on the UK's Sky Arts channel.

Comic Peter Serafinowicz will play artist Warhol in the program Hey Diddly Dee, which is directed by Hustle actor Marc Warren.

It revolves around a group of actors putting on a production about US art guru Warhol, with Minogue playing a Sedgwick-style figure called Bibbi, and will be screened in the UK on March 14.

We've got to wonder, does she have the comedic chops to pull this off? Possibly. This hat was pretty funny.


Minogue, 44, said: "When the script was sent to me, I read it and knew instinctively I wanted to be part of this project.

"In Hey Diddly Dee, Marc has created a beautiful and quirky story."

The Aussie pop diva has appeared in a number of movies including the recent Holy Motors, as well as taking TV roles such as a Doctor Who Christmas special.

Last time we remember Kylie doing comedy was in the feature film Biodome.

Behold, her stunning scene with a carrot.

And before that there was 1988's Comedy Company.

If you're anything like us, the lyrics to this will come flooding back to you.
