Known as "Toon", he was originally a baker by trade. He was only a part-time amateur magic clown until he turned professional in 1950. He specialized in liquid and electronic magic.

He sold his apparatus mail order from his home in Leiden. Today, Anverdi's magical creations are very collectible among magic enthusiasts. Wonderwarehouse.com purchased the rights to all effects created by Anverid and the line manufactured by Zanadu magic.

Anverdi performed at the 1961 FISM in Switzerland doing his clown act which employed highly original magic and lectured at the 1964 FISM in Barcelona.
