Ava Bogle was born in London and raised in a hippie, liberal beach town in Northern California. She is a graduate of UCLA’s School of Theater, Film & Television.
As a comedian, she has appeared at The Comedy Store, The Viper Room, and Flappers, where she likes to talk about sex and feminism. She also likes to write about sex and feminism in her blog, Diary of a Slutty Feminist.
Her films Piano Fingers and The Last Dinner Party have screened internationally and won awards. Her film Meryl Fuckin Streep is currently playing the festival circuit, where it won Best Film at SF Indie Fest.
Bogle’s one-woman show THE PLEASURE PROJECT, about five aliens who believe the clitoris can save humanity, premiered at Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2017 where it won The Encore! Producer’s Award. In 2018, the show made its Australian debut at Adelaide Fringe Festival to rave reviews.
Ava Bogle was born in London and raised in a hippie, liberal beach town in Northern California. She attended UCLA’s School of Theater, Film & Television. As an actor, Ava is best known for her work in Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy, Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling’s The East, and Jason Connery’s The Philly Kid.
Following a string of bizarre dating experiences, in 2013 Ava began writing her honest and unflinching account of being a single woman in LA in her blog, Diary of a Slutty Feminist. Through her stand up comedy and storytelling (she has appeared on The Moth and Rogue Machine Theatre’s Rant & Rave), she uses her unique brand of sex-positivity mixed with angry feminism to talk about her favorite topics, including pubes, STDs, and abortion rights.
Along with Christina K. Moore, Ava co-directed her first short The Last Dinner Party and produced the pilot Wake Up America!, a political comedy created by Rachel Avery and Valerie Dillman, available streaming on Amazon Prime.
Most recently, Ava wrote and directed Meryl Fuckin Streep, a short about disillusion with Hollywood that mixes live action with Barbies—a feat no one has previously attempted. Ava is excited to bring together her childhood fondness for Barbies with her child-like obsession with Meryl Streep. The short is about to start its festival run (wish it luck!)
