* THE Mill Arts Centre in Banbury is hosting Hardeep Singh Kohli on Saturday. Hardeep gives theatre a whole new twist in his show Indian Takeaway by doing just what the title says. He is going to order Indian takeaway from a local restaurant. On stage. While cooking his own version of it. That means a live cooking show combined with comedy. Now that’s certainly something interesting, and something well worth £15 (£13 concessions).

* Elvis Presley never gets old, it seems. Metaphorically speaking, of course. And what’s keeping him young this time is a one night only show at the New Theatre on Monday.

Presented by Lee Memphis King, this celebration of the whole of The King’s career is the biggest Elvis show to tour the UK. Call 0844 871 3020 or visit atgtickets.com/oxford

* Tomorrow and Saturday you can get all spooked out at the Oxford Castle with a very ‘Oxford’ show, The Jester’s Tomb. Written by Oxford playwright Mary Glaspole, this is a story about a jester (as you would so rightly expect). But it is also one about love and rivalry, and there starts the excitement. For tickets call 01865 260666 or visit oxfordcastleunlocked.co.uk

 * Masterslut. A not-so-surprising title for comedy, this is Tim Key’s new show on tour, coming to the Old Fire Station on Tuesday. Tim Key has won so many awards you can’t list them (not in a few words, anyway), and at The Old Fire Station he will be reading poetry. And doing other funny, comedian-like things. Tickets are £15 (or £13 concessions). For tickets call 01865 263980 or visit oldfirestation.info

* November is a busy month at the Glee Club in Oxford, and the week ahead of us is a very good one, too. Tomorrow night sees Mike Bubbins, Dana Alexander, Joey Page and Ian Smith performing as part of ‘The Best in Live Stand-up Comedy’. And Saturday night the same title hides Mike Bubbins (yes, again), Mark Olver, Holly Walsh and Andrew Bird. It’s the best in live stand-up comedy. For tickets call 0871 472 0400 or visit glee.co.uk
