When Jimmy Ichihana was profiled in an article here in 2015 he was just making the move from New York City to Orlando. Jimmy stood out on the scene in New York, with rock solid magic skills and an upbeat and engaging personality. But his path was leading him toward a new community and new opportunities.
In July Jimmy reached a milestone when he made a national TV appearance on Penn & Teller: Fool Us. He performed an impressive version of "Call to Colors," which reflected strong showmanship on top of very smooth handling of a complicated routine. His performance has generated lots of buzz online and elewhere.
In this 70-minute audio interview Jimmy talks in detail about his experiences on the show (including some intriguing and funny anecdotes), but our conversation also looks at the path of a magician who is emerging in a broader spotlight after years of hard work and encompassing passion for his art. I found it to be an fascinating conversation that should be very informative for anyone interested in moving forward in magic.
