About this show

Basic Training is Kahlil Ashanti's funny, inspiring and true story of survival and redemption which heralds the emergence of an extraordinary talent. This is the visceral, non-stop tale of a young man who joins the Air Force to escape a childhood better forgotten. A life-altering event forces him to take a circuitous journey to confront his past, as we meet 24 remarkable and unforgettable characters we experience solely through Mr. Ashanti's rapid-fire talent. With laughter and some tears, we journey with Kahlil and the people who have impacted his life through his often hilarious real-life story, as he ultimately learns that he is more of a man by finding himself, than he ever was in the Air Force.
