Spike TV (yes Spike TV) is in the comedy business. With last week's announcement that Blue Mountain State (Tuesdays 10 p.m.) is coming back for a second season, it looks like business is good.

Blue Mountain State is a scripted comedy about a group of college football players whose love for partying and chasing (many, many) girls competes with their love for playing on an elite football squad. This well-shot, hilarious new show doesn’t mind pushing every envelope imaginable (read: sex, drugs, and a sexy woman without arms.) There's nothing quite like it on television.

The show, a nod to a host of ‘80s comedies was created by Sarah Silverman Program alums, Romanski (once Chris Romano) and Eric Falconer. Romanski (pronounced Roh-mahn-skee) also plays the role of The Goat’s mascot Sammie.

LAist had a chance to chat with Silver Lake resident Romanski about the freedom of being on Spike, filming in Montreal, and once working as a PA on South Park.
