BEV­ERLY HILLS, Calif. — Prat­falls, gags or dry wit, Nicole Kid­man says she’d love to give them a shot.

The Os­car-win­ner said that she never gets of­fered comedic roles and she’d like to change that.

“They al­ways say I’m not funny,” said Kid­man Saturday at a panel for TV crit­ics to talk about her up­com­ing role in the sec­ond in­stall­ment of Sun­danceTV’s “Top of the Lake.”

The 50-year-old ac­tress said she’s at a point in her life where she’s ea­ger to try any­thing and isn’t wor­ried about fail­ure.

“I’m willing to fall on my face, I’m willing to get back up again. I want to keep try­ing.” she said.

She also added that she’s learn­ing about com­edy from her nine-year-old daugh­ter with hus­band Keith Ur­ban, whom she’s “sure has Lu­cille Ball in her.”

Kid­man said that she grew up watch­ing com­edy shows like “I Love Lucy” and her fa­ther was a fan of the satir­i­cal MAD Mag­a­zine.

“The thing that makes me close to peo­ple is laugh­ing with them, I love it,” she added.

“Top of the Lake: China Girl” de­buts in a three-night event be­gin­ning Sept. 10 on Sun­danceTV.

Kid­man plays the adop­tive mother to the daugh­ter Elis­a­beth Moss’ char­ac­ter gave away at birth.
