Bill Cosby uplifted the crowd at the funeral for Tad Schnugg, the lifelong partner of Tony Award-winning choreographer George Faison, which took place at Harlem’s First Corinthian Baptist Church on Monday.

“A play has to be written about the two of you,” Cosby told Faison, who was Schnugg’s partner of fifty years.

“People don’t know about two men in love with each other. And George — to me — that’s the story that has to be told because anyone in love knows the story. They know their story. They know 50 years. You don’t think about 50 years when you fall in love. You just look at old people — and they’re not gonna tell you a thing about it,” Cosby quipped in an exclusive video obtained by “Page Six TV.”

Oprah Winfrey and Stephanie Mills also paid their respects to Schnugg, who passed away from urethral cancer on Jan. 13.

That same day, the 80-year-old returned to the stage to perform a comedy set for the first time since dozens of women accused him of sex abuse in 2015. During his set at LaRose Jazz Club in Philadelphia, he failed to mention the sex abuse scandal in which more than 60 women have come forward to claim he drugged and molested them over five decades.

Cosby is scheduled for a retrial in April on charges he sexually assaulted a woman at his Philadelphia home in 2004. His first trial ended with a hung jury last year.”
