J. B. Bobo (February 11, 1910 in Texarkana, Texas – 12 September 1996)[1][2] was a magician most known for his work and writing in the arena of coin magic.

His work entitled Modern Coin Magic (originally published in 1952) is still considered today to be a core reference [3][4] by most magicians.[5]

He also authored Watch This One!, a collection of choice magical effects performable with small objects.

Bobo's great grandfather was Jean Beaubeaux who, when immigrating to America, was induced to spell his name 'Bobo', a phonetic transliteration of the French Beaubeaux into English.
