Difficult to see what is happening, since you have so many
dependencies. However, from the traceback I would say that
you are passing to the decorator a function with a __name__
attribute which is None. I would insert a call to pdb here

def __call__(self, func):
        import pdb; pdb.set_trace()
        return decorator(self.call, func)

and I would inspect func.__name__.
