Humor actor Ime Bishop have declared his fervent love for food in a chat with Saturday beats.

In the chat, the humorous actor revealed that his undying love for food resulted in him being great cook so no one can deprive him of it.

He said if he was deprived of food, he would cry.

“I do chores; the once that interest me. I love food a lot. There is no food I cannot eat and once I crave a certain food, I cook it. I don’t place myself in a situation where someone would hold me to ransom by denying me food. You can do that with anything but if you try it with food, I can cry. I love food immeasurably. I thank God that I can cook anything. My mother taught me how to cook,” he said.

He told Saturday Beats that he often come across to people as being dumb and flippant owing to his comedy role in movies but on the contrary he’s really clever and people are most times stunned at his smartness when he’s not acting.

Citing an example he said, “There was a time when I was in the middle of a discussion with some people and I noticed a woman staring at me with her mouth wide open. She did not close her mouth or stop staring at me till I left the place and I knew it was because of the way I was handling the discourse intelligently.”

He further stated, “I don’t believe anyone is born dumb and for me, what you see on the television is different from reality. Like I always tell people, I have dual personality; I have the domestic and commercial life. What you see on the television is the commercial aspect of me, but when you see me physically, that is my domestic side.

“You cannot deal with the commercial aspect of me for a whole day without being frustrated because Okon cannot take a single instruction without causing headache. It is an unrealistic comedy, it is called exaggerative humour. I give my artistic dexterity to the public, they love it and I laugh all the way to the bank.

“I have a good sense of humour but it is not exaggerative. I don’t wear bathroom slippers and sagging trousers around my house; neither do I climb the fence instead of using the gate or shout at any little thing that frightens me when my wife is around. It cannot happen because I am the husband and the man of the house. I play with our children. I am a loving husband.”
