Yep. I've run Risus one-shots at the NC Game Day and GenCon and people who had never even heard of the system before they walked in the room were playing just fine within minutes. Character creation takes as little as 2 minutes. NPC creation might take you ten seconds.
It can be used for any genre. I've run superheroes and am currently using it for a solo modern mystery/horror game. I've played in a wild west setting with a hint of the supernatural.
It is easy and fun and, given that it's free, I'd recommend that anybody give it a try.
