(Silver Spring, Md.) It’s a bike club. It’s a brotherhood. It’s THE DEVILS RIDE premiering Tuesday, May 8 after DEADLIEST CATCH at 10pm e/p on Discovery. For the first time Discovery goes inside the world of motorcycle clubs with the members of San Diego’s Laffing Devils.

THE DEVILS RIDE sports a diverse crew but one bonded by a commitment to each other and the club. Meet Laffing Devils president Gipsy, who must balance the club’s growing ranks with pressure from older members to maintain the status quo. An ex-Marine who served in Iraq, Gipsy credits the club for helping him deal with the emotional scars of war. Then there’s club VP, Billy the Kid, who waits in the wings wondering if he’ll have the chance to lead the Laffing Devils. And younger member Snubz breaks all the biker stereotypes with his degree in finance and a full time corporate job.


THE DEVILS RIDE finds the Laffing Devils not only in open conflict internally but also at risk of losing their homebase. The Laffing Devils’ unofficial headquarters is the auto body shop owned by fellow member Hawkster but police pressure might force the club to find a new home. Moving is going to cost the club money so Gipsy seeks out security work for the Laffing Devils guarding a liquor store in a very dangerous part of town. Will their new responsibilities pit the club against one another?


THE DEVILS RIDE also covers what would-be members must do to prove themselves to the club before they can be “patched in.” In order to earn his spot, prospect Charles is out on an official club task of protecting some of the club’s wives and girlfriends, or “Ol’ Ladies” on a night out. When a pushy photographer gets too close for comfort, blood boils and the situation gets physical. Will Charles’ actions protecting the women earn him the respect of the young blood and, more importantly, earn him his cut?

THE DEVILS RIDE is produced for Discovery Channel Bischoff Hervey Entertainment. Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey are Executive Producers. For Discovery Channel, David Pritikin is Executive Producer.

  • SickBastard 1%er

    Swallowing our teeth like the way you swallo jizz you durty cum guzzler

  • RVLZ

    As a Member of the Biker Community this show gives a bad name to all clubs and riders. I Agree with everyone that said that no self respecting club would allow a non-member to know club business

  • #sickof1%er’s

    I am from Colorado Springs, CO and we have Son’s of Silence here. I live down the street from a couple of dead beat bikers from that club. Their club was on Gangland and a few of them I see in town like their “Larry” was on the show. They are all a bunch of punks. Who would kill their family member for that club. They are a bunch of imtimidating fat asses and their ol ladies are all ugly. Their kids are unrulely and dis all communittee servants. I hope this show will let the public know what type of idiots they are. If you see a 1% around don’t let them imtimidate you.

  • #sickof1%er’s AS WELL

    So I think you in CS your fire chief is a SOS as well!!! That sucks…

  • forty year rider

    no true 1% mc would do this

  • michael

    If u think they are fake go ride with them

  • Cajun

    Is this a support club for a 1% club? I thought it was a big no no to air club business in public.

  • Smarterthanyou

    They are not 1%ers nor a support club nor do they claim to be either of those, just an MC trying to let the world know that not all motorcycle clubs are “gangs” or deadbeat A-holes, but good respectable men who love their families, are business owners, entrepreneurs, do charity runs and get together and ride. Just because a promo tries to make the club look a certain way to try to grab viewers, doesn’t make it true. How sad that you all try to judge something purely on a 60 second commercial…you are embarrassing yourselves. Then again, I am just stating the obvious.

  • South Jersey Mike

    I totally agree, no “ACTUAL” 1% CLUB would allow ANY TV crews to follow their daily lives and the daily operations of their CLUB!!! I mean really, do they think people will believe this is REAL??? Again no CLUB will show the process of a “Hang Around” evolving to a “Prospect” and then finally to being “Patched In”.. For starters it sometimes takes ACTUAL CLUB members YEARS to go through all the steps to being “Patched In”.. I just think the whole thing is funny!!! They’re just trying to jump on the band wagon that FICTIONAL, but AWESOME FX show “Sons of Anarchy” started… All in all, no ACTUAL 1% CLUB would invite the trouble and headaches for themselves & their club that this shows attention would bring.. If it were that easy to get an ACTUAL club to sign on for this then the “Hells Angels”, “Pagins”, “Warlocks” and “The Breed” would all have their own REALITY TV shows!!! Wait, maybe then, once they all became TV stars everyone would get off their backs and let them do what they love to do most.. RIDE…….

  • JB

    I dont think this is a 1% club, I dont see any diamonds and look at the bottom rockers,, all the pics i see say NOMADS,, I kinda figure It should say CALIFORNIA if they were real, right,, Im thinking this is kinda like a realy bad porno “SOA does Reality TV” filmed in discovery vision, for all the cage potatoes, some kind of inbread BS like that…so when this airs, we should all get a good laugh and see just how pathetic discovery has become in search of ratings next up on the 2013 sched biker grannys from hell coming to a town near you….

  • nick

    looks pretty gay no real mc would allow cameras all up in the mix

  • Sinn

    Want to ride with the real devils and real outlaws and true 1% try rideing with the only ones that have the bottom rocker that says berdoo

  • #sickof1%er’s

    NOMADS I hear are the ones that kill people. Well thats what the show Gangland says when they are secretly filming SOS in Colorado. Losers all around.
