BJ Hickman is a consummate professional! He kept our young audience enthralled and the older folks present enjoyed him just as much!
BJ arrived right on time, set up and started on schedule. He is clearly comfortable working with small children and they were engaged throughout the entire 45 minute show. We will certainly recommend BJ Hickman to any group looking for a professional, high quality and entertaining show.

We thoroughly enjoyed his show and interaction.

Our event was a Christmas party for adults and BJ was there to mingle among the guests and do magic tricks in small groups at a time.
He arrived on time, introduced himself and interacted well with everyone. Whether a child or adult most are still fascinated with magic. And, this was the case with our group. Everyone enjoyed watching BJ in amazement and then wondered “how did he do that”. Having BJ at our Christmas party was to try something different and it was a great success!!

BJ was fantastic. There was lots of smiles and a ton of laughter.
He held the attention of 30+ kids between the ages of 4 and 8 for the full 45 min. My kids have been playing ‘magician’ ever since the party. BJ was very professional and easy to work with.

It is with great pleasure that I am writing to thank you for yet another wonderful hour full of fun and laughter!
My husband and I have seen your performance several times over the years and yet it is always fresh and full of life as you add new things and present time honored sleight of hand infused with your own personal flair. You are a consummate performer with a delightful sense of humor and impeccable timing which brings a refreshing smoothness to your show. I enjoy it every time! Your comedic presentation and ability to interact quickly and naturally with every audience is an amazing feat of magic in itself! You are a true gentleman with a clean, wholesome act that children and senior citizens alike will appreciate and look forward to seeing again, just as I do! Every B.J. Hickman show is “magic”! Thank you!
