Matt Little, a standup comic, spoke to INSIDE EDITION about running into the rodent. “After the initial shock wore off, I pulled my phone out immediately.

“We tried to give him a wide berrth, stay away once we landed on the bottom stairs,” he said.

Little said he stumbled onto “pizza rat” around 1 a.m. Monday as he was hopping a subway home from a comedy club.

The rat even came up when Donald Trump appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

I saw that rat!” said Trump.

When Little got home, he posted the cellphone video, and 12 hours later, it was trending worldwide on Twitter under #pizzarat, with over 400 tweets per minute.

The late-night comics are finding the video as tasty as, well, a slice of pizza. Colbert quipped, “Here, if a rat doesn’t bring you a slice in 30 minutes or less, it’s free.”
