BJ Hickman’s first ever magic show on a stage and for a sizable audience was at a Church hall in Billerica, Massachusetts. In his early teens, he was a winner on the Boston TV show Community Auditions. Since then, he has been somewhat regular with yearly shows at several Massachusetts recreation departments, libraries and child care centers. Hickman has performed three shows annually at Boston’s FirstNight on New Year’s Eve for 15 consecutive years. He also performs regularly at Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline. His lectures for Massachusetts magicians have been popular at magic clubs and magician conventions throughout the Commonwealth.
