It’s been far too long since we last posted about one of our favorite Web series #nitTwits, co-created by Mark Mathias Sayre and comedian Amber Tozer. To get you up to speed, here’s the deal: Short comedy films are produced based on funny Tweets from comedians and comedy writer-types. In the latest, Tozer turns her tweet — “One time my bball coach yelled TOZER WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU I yelled I THINK HUMANS ARE ALL FUCKED UP I WANNA BE A PLANT then he benched me” — into a nearly five-minute episode of #nitTwits starring some great comedians.

In Wreck League (puns 4Eva!), Katie Massa Kennedy (pictured) plays the sociopathic basketball coach of a struggling ladies basketball team, comprised of Tozer, Lauren Ashley Bishop, Jackie Monahan, Liz Stewart, Shelagh Ratner and Erin Foley. Check it out below and tell us who your favorite player is.
