In a new video for Vanity Fair, some of Stephen Colbert’s late night competitors share their best advice for the soon-to-be “Late Show” host.

Jimmy Kimmel advises Colbert to "be very rude to the guests and wear a lot of cologne,” Trevor Noah wisely suggests “be careful what you tweet,” while Conan O’ Brien thinks he should just invest in some real-estate (“That’s what’s going to last. And I mean valuable real-estate, real-estate that’s on the water, real-estate that’s in a city that’s up and coming. Don’t buy in Florida”).
