Kahlil Ashanti, actor and ticketing innovator

Kahlil Ashanti is an accomplished performer and an innovative app designer. He also served in the United States Air Force where he was a company member with the legendary performance ensemble Tops in Blue.

In this episode, we discuss the tool he created to help performers grow the revenue: WeShowUp.io

WeShowUp.io is a fantastic app, with many uses, one of which provides a platform for artists to entice new audiences to book a spot for a performance and then, after the performance, make a digital payment. This eliminates the sticker shock of a high ticket price, thus providing a low-cost entry point for discovering a performer’s work.

Prior to writing computer code, Ashanti created and performed the solo show “Basic Training,” which went from the Montreal Fringe Festival to a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe and off-Broadway. The show won many awards including a NY Times Critics Pick and the Scotsman Fringe First Award.

Ashanti appears in “The Tick” on Amazon Prime and season 15 of ‘Supernatural” on The CW.

WeShowUp.io, is a digital solution that, long before the pandemic, was being used by theatres around the world. Now, as digital events have become the norm, weshowup.io can help you grow your audience and increase revenue.
