Magician BJ Hickman Featured At Magicians' Convention Honoring Shimada

New Hampshire magician BJ Hickman remembers watching Japanese magician Shimada on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. He was on Carson’s show four times. Shimada has earned the prestige of being the most awarded and celebrated magician in the history of magic. “He has always been one of my favorites,” according to Hickman. “Shimada has performed on hundreds of TV shows, in Las Vegas, and all over the world.” The International Brotherhood of Magicians (I.B.M.) honored Shimada at their annual convention this year. Hickman was on the same bill.
“It was such an honor to meet Shimada and spend some time talking with him,” Hickman said. “He’s a star in magic.” Shimada’s publicist wrote, “With elegance, grace and undeniable mystery, Shimada is captivating the moment he steps on stage. The sheer intensity of his eyes hypnotizes the audience as he performs feat after feat of flawless magic with doves and silks, cards and candles. Shimada is also famous for his spectacular Dragon Act.
Hickman is a 40 year member of the I.B.M. and spoke at this year’s annual convention in Nashville recently. Hickman shared the best of his magic routines and marketing strategies with I.B.M attendees. The I.B.M. is the world’s largest organization for magicians and for people interested in the magical arts with nearly 12,000 members worldwide in over 300 local chapters in 73 countries. The I.B.M. is considered to be the most respected organization for magic collectors, amateur and professional magicians in the world.
Magician BJ Hickman entertains family audiences primarily throughout New England and occasionally elsewhere. He returns next month for seven nights at Hollywood’s Magic Castle.
In recent years, BJ has taken his experience to the domain of speaking for various groups.  In his humorous keynote presentation or workshop, “,” he instructs children’s health care professionals about keeping patients comfortable and relaxed in the doctor’s office.
