NY Post reports that 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 January 13th, 2018.
