The University of Houston can claim another national title now that Glaundor (no, don't check your Scottish history books, they made it up) has won the National College Improv Tournament in Chicago.
It's the first time a group from the Southwest won and the second outside Illinois to win. To get there, the UH student improvisational comedy guys made their way through a regional competition in Austin.
Glaundor's members include Jason Ronje, Colin David, Andrew Garrett, Kirk Ellis, Kevin Lusignolo, Adam Sowers and Saurabh Pande.
"After we finished our performance for the final round, I realized that it was one of our best sets," Ronje said according to a UH press release. "I turned to Kevin (Lusignolo) and said, 'We might actually win.' It wasn't until then that I thought it was a possibility. Then, they announced our name as the winner, and we all went nuts."
